Larry got lost
between love and lust
his hormones drove him nuts

Jen was sorely tempted
her monthlies dissented
so modesty prevented

teens are tossed
this way and that
hormones, growth spurts, peer pressure

experiments or dares often deride
parents either control or avoid
expecting religion or teachers to guide

scarce guidance for when or how
prevention avoided
cure turns sour!

knowledge is real power
morality will empower
so be open to an uncomfortable chat

being black or white is a fool
rigid rule is so uncool
talking it thru is the best tool
