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.

(284)  It Starts Somewhere?

It starts with an appetite crest,

Slowly rumbling to craze chest.

Such vehement rude vibration

Acquiesce into obsession.

Possession then strikes into décor!

The torrid hatred feeling scorch

Violently in the atrium,

Vomiting red wick labium!

Strained to refrain, he pummels bliss

Into faustian knowledge wish,

Surfeit by bacchanalian

Pursuit zeal the chameleon.

Erogeneity claimant

The moment of eagerness scrunch!

Compress to hard drive dictionnaire.

The power to redress somewhere,

But here an exorbitant price

To pay in accordance with rites.
