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.

Am I in a midlife crisis?

Party and dine in the finest!

Dandy and chap like a highness!

Drinking away till I’m lifeless!

Jog all day long till arthritis!

Some say I got the Midas touch.

I fight them for being unjust.

Those who fought me show armistice.

I collect things that are priceless.

Those objets d’art that are diceless.

Until buyers became bias.

Corona become the virus

Causing all sorts of bronchitis.

Let’s wait for a milder climate

When they support the gone righteous!

Who will side with you, ultimus?
