Victorian Era

Victorian Era
~Victorian Era~ I think that the Victorian age would have suited me The ingenuity fashion the great exhibition Would all have been fascinating for me to see. Not a child up chimneys, that’s not my mission Not a Debtors Prison or Blacking factory. None of these I’d do, that’s not my ambition. I want to invent and better things for all, The Victorian era was when inventors had a ball. From Steam ships to sewers, lighting, and heating. Bazalgette cleaned the streets Pettit and Smith made us warm Lister invented antiseptic which we now use after eating. Anaesthetic was invented, which is now the norm. Science and technology all the greats were meeting But prostitution and destitution were in need of reform. A great Victorian lady I would have liked to be But I am quite happy, with the twenty-first century me.

    a very matter of fact take on why you would have liked that era. Mine is almost like yours for eras, perhaps set a bit further back in time. Just gotta put the finishing touches on it. Good luck in the contest. I don't think you will need it!!

    No, I did not read the other one first, I only commented on it first! Quite a stretch twixt then and now. Perhaps the queen would get a tch of color in her cheeks were she around to invite you over for tea.
