“If I Were Tickled by the Rub of Love” is about the nature of human sexuality and its impact on Christian values and vice versa. That is a complex issue for the moral man. Makes many of us wish for the long ago innocence of childhood before the onset of passion and desire.

There is a typo in the second line of the third stanza. greet girls should be green girls. Someone please fix this. Take note.

Wonderfully odd poem about the complexities of growing as human beings in love and life. I also liked the biblical allusions. Very capturing and odd.
