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.

(280)  Promenade Your One Truth

Every year, some of you will rise.

Some of you will slip in the crack.

One of you will grab the bread knife.

What do you want to be in life?

A bunny or a hound?  Go prowl!

What the hell do you want to plow?

Here come the rioters on fire!

Igniting the coals of hellfire!

Spontaneity thrill seekers!

Weekend drops!  Spread jam or butter?

Black. White. Asian ike.  Dynamite!

Breast plate. Sneaker state. Ain’t polite!

I am going all out! Check mate!

Do you plan to go all in skate?

Promenade the circle!  Cut throats!

You took an oath and now you bolt! 

Maelstrom the darkness of dungeon!

Gang bang ours heads with melungeon!

I beseech you!  I complete you!

You didn’t hear a damn word!  Break through!
