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.

Inquisitive minds want to grow

In nature to never rest flow

Of ideology standard,

So dense it perceives as manner.

I cancel culture.

She stalks me like witness vulture.

In the ketchup, ready to meet.

Stretching on limbs, I hear the beat.

Driving away into sunset

Boulevard where we once have met.

Stone cold as if petrified wood,

Wish I could.  Believe me I would.

Money seems to make her funny.

I prefer a cup of honey

Intermix with intelligent

Athleticism in cadence.

Recipe for a new credence

Without the suggestive pretense.

Intensify the sublingual

To reflect on what said mural.
