John and Marcia



The duty of every lover is not to engage in idle banter when the elements of trust and devotion are better manifested in tokens of far greater worth.

“John, John”, “Marcia
Marcia, Marcia”, No!
These are not enough

“I pledge thee my troth”.
“Like a loaded Visa card?
John, I do, I do!”

  1. These are witty, and the principles are true; but the
    'loaded Visa card' made me chuckle.

  2. Oh, now that's good! At some point love has to get down to the business of living.

  4. This is clever..for some reason made me think of 'Spring and Port wine' ..(what us red in skool!) there must be better comparisons but it's a deliciously knowing social commentary..jae

  5. I got a kick out of this. You certainly can't have love without a loaded Visa card.

  6. A loaded Visa card is the last thing I would want from Lex, so this made me laugh out loud. It's SO true of so many of my girlfriends: They are materialistic and cannot see past their potential mate's paycheck. That includes one of my sisters! Thanks, Robin. Amy

  7. Oh! Good old John and Marcia! I enjoyed this "updated and contemporary" version. I like the world in which John always gets his Marcia.
