021 - The Earl I Ruined
Updated: Mar 19, 2020
Our episode today is one most scandalous,
A Lady and an Earl who were far from amorous.
A bold action to disparage,
Leads to a necessary offer of marriage.
Will there ever be trust between them then,
In this titillating tale by Scarlett Peckham?
And while our characters' love was allowed to soar,
Zoë and Kelsey could in no way reach an accord.
And with the end of this terrible poem,
We invite you to tune in for details and then some!
**Spoilers, I'm really bad at poems**
