Delighted in caring for Mr. Woodhouse
For how often does one find such cash cows?
Won't get to gorge.
He decided, generous to the core,
That Jane's appletite mattered more.

As she refused most of their inquiring
The ensuing gossip that they spread far and wide
Begged the question: “Has she something to hide?”
Mr. Robert Martin
Wants to have his part in
Harriet's life, but Emma's school of hard knocks
Says his wife will be one of the Miss Cox
So her monologs are rich with gossip
The source of many a linkup or a mixup
Mr. George Knightley
Comports himself rightly
Eschewing inconvenient surprises
And duplicity in all of its guises
