Battle of the Sexes

By 15th May 2011December 9th, 2019No Comments

An entrance for boys
An entrance for girls
The boys with short haircuts
The girls with long curls

They used separate doors
But they met in the middle
Though went separate ways
When they needed to piddle

They had different clothes
And they played different games
In other respects
They seemed much the same

And no child would think
There was anything more
Than only these differences
When they were four

And so years ago
This is how our nation
Handled the start
Of its sex education

The rest was taboo
But as children grew
The more that they knew
The more they would do!
