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.

A word such as "Tis" is enough to make One think that the author is but a fake, And seeks only to impress and flatter Those who hear him while he grows much fatter Off excess tax and revenue's well earned By those who do market what some have spurned As the verbose verbatim in ill verse That leads to an early death and black hearse. But I know "Tis" to be but a small word Made up in the mind of the great herald Of musical poetry found in lines Most lyrical, and by which a maid pines After the one who speaks the word to her. For "Tis" is but 'is' and 'it' in a sure Annotated format from England's glen Made up by Authors and great poets when Much hate and loathing for French made speaking Prompted men to reshape their way of thinking By which they thought all thoughts worth while to think; Yet still it exists and wont leave if we blink. Words may outlive their time or place of fashion, Cease to communicate man's pent up passion, Fail to please the ear or the mind within, And be thought of only as a mere has been, But still they exist for those few brave souls Who seek to shape and to fashion new goals Which cannot be expressed by our own thoughts And can only by "Tis" be known as they ought.
