It is superficial, frivolous and mock.
It is artificial, synthetic and schlock.
It is accidental, impulsive and chance.
It is incidental, unrehearsed and stance.
It is ornamental, affected and chic.
It is elemental, primitive and bleak.
It is monumental, colossal and vast.
It is transcendental, elusive and fast.
It is sentimental, syrupy and thick.
It is temperamental, erratic and slick.
It is emotional, petulant and qualm.
It is sensational, bravura and calm.
It is believable, authentic and true.
It is achievable, pragmatic and new.
It is coincidence, fictitious and guise.
It is humanity, eccentric and wise.
