MoP, Day 28

‘Have you any other objection,’ said Elizabeth,

‘than your belief of my indifference?’
and two centuries of a million readers
breathe out a sigh of relief and yell for joy
when the original rom-com duo 
are wed at last.
Jane Austen, the master of all literary
sexual tension and satirical wit
smiles wryly to herself,
puts her head down, and keeps writing.
Happy birthday P + P
