“Rhymes for all times” will be the second volume of poems in the Has Doubts series, written by ALEXANDER VELKY and published by Doubtist Books.
Its theme is history and truth, and the nature of the relationship between the two;
The volume uses allegory, autobiography, biography, history and polemic, and lots of very simplistic rhyme schemes. Just like the first vloume; only much, much better.
The collection is currently unavailable; but we are raising funds, so if you want to sponsor it, or pre-order a copy, or just give me money as a one-off gesture of foolishness, knock yourself out.
This is the running order in the current draft. Many of the poems were published in earlier draft form on Facebook or on my old Has Doubts blog. A couple are already published and available to read (follow the links). Some have never been read by anyone but their author. One or two aren’t even written:
