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.

(282)  Riding the Gravy Train

I am so silence but deadly.

Sadly, it is not my fart. Mad?

Rather medley about you know.

No.  I don’t know and I don’t care!

Scare are you of your exit wound?

Tune in to the radio now.

The sacred cow left us nothing!

Flossing the chew crumbs of estate,

They ablate the wealth for their own!

Known, grown not enough for the safe!

Savings dwindling because we buy,

Try on impulse!  Coach has not share,

Aware of the problem?  Sown it

Spit on the escalade that we

Seize to ride the gravity train!

Sprain steps slow the food chain towards

Rewards that safety pin our pays.

Weigh in gold bars?  Very funny.

Honey excuse me for sinful!

Cinch to reveal brings in awful!
