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.

(259)  Scent of a Virgin

I smell somebody a virgin.

The scent leads to heard excursion.

What virtue among temptations!

A fairy tale stained frustration!

The pungency awakes my sense!

I try to shake it and amend.

How to bottle such holy fume?

Do wild birds expel such par plume?

I am doom to a headless groom!

I will be consume by wild blooms!

Why do nuns have to smell so good?

I am on my knees banging wood!

These hardwood bench bleeds my immense!

These self-inflicted wounds - my friend.

Why must I keep on writing poem

When nobody wants to beknown?

For the stereotype boar scare

And the dry spell beyond repair.

Scent of a virgin will attract

The noblest of might to react.
