Unmask the virtuoso stain
A mere mortals merit, and
Qualm expression of pain
A gallantry tinge to credit.

Reveal an ailing mind
A dire of wiles, and
Quakey emotions to find
A sorrowful sully riles.

Unveil your fine gift
An emodiment of sage, as
Quivering passion bare rifts
A prudent taint of rage.

Reclaim your fortitude
An embryo of hope, an
Equipoise of a wavy feud
A justice imbues a merciful grope.
