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.

(240)  St. Lucia Mon Cheri

My doll wings stretch on stage in page.

Break a town!  A wit out engage.

Rasta pasta semolina.

Hip hop maestro trampoline bard.

My soul through the rhythm Pitons.

Soldiers for armistice mission.

Parasol hammock made for two

With island peace, merriment news.

Shaky lately?  What da boom boom!

Wakey naked lady!  My room

Room in dispose!  May I propose

That we discuss over some toast.

Rent a car to club hopping boast.

Build a campfire, curry conch roast.

Shop the high-end streets till we drop!

Buy you a nice handbag.  Thrill hops!

What do you want? What? I want you.

Why do you runt? Shake?  I owe you.

I snorkel zoo want ownership.

I am so into you!  Let’s trip.
