9- Sex Education

Now class, you know why we are here: Sex Ed.
Well, actually, that’s how we got here, or
you’re virgin births.  A joke. Take it as read
you know all that.  But do you know there’s more?

My bounty is as boundless as the sea,
My love as deep.  The more I give to thee
The more I have, for both are infinite.

It’s not just sex.  There are the things above
the physical to find, to know – enjoy.
You’ll fall in love.  I hope you fall in love,
though that brings problems, too – for girls and boys.

When he shall die
Take him and cut him out in little stars
And he will make the face of heaven so fine
That all the world will be in love with night.

You think you made the things that you discover.
You are the last – make all the same mistakes –
yet think you are the first to love – first ever!
How much you have to learn.  How long it takes.

O I have bought the mansion of a love,
But not possessed it … tedious is this day.
Be not so long to speak.  I long to die
If what thou speakest, speak not of remedy.

For homework you can read about effects
Of drugs at discos, and about safe sex.

O shut the door, and when though hast done so,
Come weep with me, past hope, past cure, past help.
