A Tale of Progress

Far, far away, and not anywhere near,
Of a time too obscure to give a date clear,
Think, there was an animalier
Expecting aesthetically to cohere
If they’d endear ― an engineer.

Just think, an animalier and an engineer!

Concerns pertinent before long do appear:
To give the endeavor a proper, good cheer,
Do you look a buccaneer, or ― a cameleer?

An animalier; an engineer!

A chocolatier, do you ensphere,
Or, love recipes to discard,
By the leer, plain orienteer?
Far, far away, not anywhere near,
An animalier; an engineer!
