Default Another Strephon

I came across the following verse while reading through Mr. Punch's Book of Love: Being the Humours of Courtship and Matrimony, found on Project Gutenberg. Yes, it is that "Punch", the London humor magazine. As I have never seen the name "Strephon" appear anywhere besides Traveller, I thought that it was quite interesting. I will have to include it in my store of odd and off-beat trivia.

Quote:
Yes, I allow
Strephon's more showy;
As for me, now
I prefer Chloe.

I march to my own set of bagpipes. Caution: This individual thinks that studying logistics is FUN.

They that go down to the sea in ships,
that do business in great waters;
These see the works of the LORD,
and his wonders in the deep.
