Journal 48
A Collection of New Alliterative Verse
by ArchDuke Kenneth Khanh Du

“My reflection upon the current climate which send heat waves simmering throughout time.”

New Alliterative Verse has five set parameters defined by me:
1. A couplet line poem with 20 lines or less
2. Each line contained no more than eight syllables
3. Each line has alliteration of either consonant or vowel
4. The alliteration must be tied to the next line (hence couplet)
5. Rhymed or unrhymed

Alliterative Verse as a form was adopted by me from the skalds of Norway. Skalds were the Viking's poet-musicians and their poetic form began somewhere in the 9th Century. The original form(s) with many however remain unstructured and often confusing /or ambiguous.

(237)  The Pheromone Disrupter

The smell of palliative burn

Caressing the laceration

Often wound up in the battle

Open field with nowhere to hide!

It’s that time of the year to nuke!

Quickly, fridge over the grenade!

You’re the boss.  Return the fire!

Return to me what I have loss.

Higher wage toss on war affair.

Compare.  Buzz compute. Mixed signals.

Whistle-like rasping lisp phono.

Musical rattling chirps dare spell.

Confused mates, husky foo movements.

Par fume aerates the stoic doom.
