Virtuosity is great Skill in Music, or other Artistic Pursuits; while Flair deals with Style and Originality. Together they make Poetry tempered by the flair of nature in an effort to overcome mediocrity and so traverse the path of those historical figures who displayed virtuosity.

The Apple and the Snake
Knowledge is power? That's what they say. When did power become, so to say Someone smarter than another, say More than is needed? Knowledge will say The way you will be greeted by say The masses uneducated; by say The people who you care about; by say The politicians who smoke you out. Say You know everything so to speak, say That you have come to a peak; but say You've gotten there, what then? Will you say What you know? What have you gotten? Say You know all things, but do you have love? Say, I bet knowledge comes from up above; say, From God, who's perfection is love. Say, Do you have love? Or know what it is? Say That knowledge is power, what next? Say That power makes you less perplexed? Say, Isn't there more to knowing what is? Say... Believing and doing what's rightly known? Knowledge is power, as I hope to have shown.
