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.

(274)  Serenading You for a Date

Tell me.

Sell it to me!

What must I do to be your boy?

I’m not the kind that play with toys!

Here’s two tickets for a concert!

Get ready to rock duh berserk!

Don’t try to be late or tardy.

I’m not going to wait for maybe!

I got my rolls and my car wash.

We drink all day, all night steal slosh!

Don’t take a poll, cause it’s one shot!

You think all this, and all that, hot!

Here I gyro my pelvis yup!

One groove will cure all your hiccups!

Those khaki boys got boink on me!

My LV bribe will purse your needs!

Are we in lingo for this date?

You’re not going to make me wait.

Why must I get drunk to have sex?

Mating call for what?  I am next!
