Poetry Thursday

This Week's Poetry Thursday topic is... Sex.

Now, I am not a prude, but I am not very brave. So I would like to share my favorite all-time sex poems with you, but I will make you go somewhere else to read them. I found them in high school when my teacher read 'Carrots' to us. They are absolutely hilarious - I can't wait to hear what you think!!

I had to do some searching to find this poetry on the web, but another blogger has posted them before, so here they are. (scroll down a little bit on her post to find them. They are called, 'The Sex Lives of Vegetables' by Lorna Crozier.)

Wow - I really love those poems. But I can't believe you read "Carrots" in high school - I'm a high school teacher, and if I read that I'd get fired! Cool -thanks for sharing!

Funny how so much sex involved with cultivated vegetation. I like the Onion one best of these, but have to hand it to those carrots and their orange persistence!

Hilarious! And I, too, can't believe your teacher read "Carrots" to you. :)

Teehee. Wow, I REALLY can't believe you read those in high school! (and I think I'll blush too the next time I encounter a carrot). Thanks for pointing the way to these.

oh my dear friend...just read this aloud to jon as we sit in a cafe trying to beat the heat. we both chuckled out loud...or rather, guffawed.

thanks for these...will never be able to look at a bunch of carrots again without thinking of what they might have been up to yesterday.
