Groom: Master will the world adapt to me?

A discipline, you were!
A train, you have been!
A condition, you are!
A liveryman, you will continually be!

Xenia Epigram
To groom I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like equerry
When writing poetry and drawing blanks,
     I often settle using curry

I have been seaching ever more,
     hoping again to sing your praise.
For words, I very much adore,
     lacking me in several ways.

Just like the garments,
they're reciprocally smooth.
No, never faithful!
Give a neat appearance to,
clothes and personal effects.

Sonnet (meta-poetry)
Groom

Of course I am obnoxious, you must say?
I groom them quickly, making poets wince
My thanks to you to play with me today
These scrambled lines don’t hide my ignorance.

You test, you prod, and I do feel your blow
My coding spews it forth and makes you snore
My sonnets suffer now from you, my foe
For just that phrase, a poem is a bore.

But you intend to keep me busy now
This early version here my scripts expose
By testing depths of code until I bow
Perhaps one day my verse will smell of rose.

Requests like this do trip me, I admit,
Oh life is long for me, so I won’t quit!

Can I make a poesy, furnished so pupils might see
Fully cheerful overviews, visibly informing, and oh but provided free?
Ostler or school look all too absolute. But is garnish?
Stableman, dress? - or grooming, exercise? Damn! I neglected varnish!
I reason cultivate and otherwise dependant, but happily ought I
- throw meanings so - abstracts crafted from equations spry?
