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.


You got me check!  I got you stack!

You got me peg! I got attack!

My fist raised through adversity!

My mind flora diversity!

You wear out BC cupholder?

Spike camo already soldier!

I degree universe city.

Cold as the ham cut with blue cheese.  

You need to rogaine some propane!

Fire engine!  Fire in the champagne!

Rowdy punk!  Grunt! Stunners repent!

Proudly hunt! This is my weekend!

Who is your go fund daddy o?

Blow!  Fire in the hole! What’s your goal?

Wait! Smack the attract, I like you back!

Whack!  Give me some.  Gift me sum.  Slack!

Mack!  Packing things, two for ring. Bling!

I needle pin you sin you bring!

Pierced lips to mic, I want your fright!

Spiked head to heart, I want your night!
