We shall be hearing more of one Constance Savage Keith...


Percy's Love Life (Plutonic Sonnets 135)


From faith and family Irva feared to stray,
So that relationship did not quite burgeon;
Then he let charming Edith get away,
In part because she was not quite a virgin.
Miss Erna chased him not quite hard enough:
His amorous response, in his own phrase,
Was “incomplete.” (’Tis but of late there’s stuff
To help an aging man with that malaise.)
Meanwhile, his secretary made long strife
With Constance Keith for Percy (and their war
Continued after Constance was his wife,
And even after Percy was no more).
But Percy loved work more than love or sex;
And his next work was finding “Planet X”!
