Then the Renaissance came and times continued to change. Nothing stayed the same, but there were always renegades. Like Edgar Allen Poe, Mark Twain, James Joyce, Jack Kerouac, Charles Bukowski…

They were renegades of their time and age, So many renegades…
We’re the renegades of prose
We’re the renegades of prose
