Who Practices Abstinence - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

There's always talk about...
The getting of sex.
There's always talk about...
An innocence to protect.
And there's always talk about...
What children will do next,
If they don't ignore temptation...
And practice abstinence.

Who practices abstinence...
When the meaning's lean on doing.
And who practices abstinence...
When we're marketed to be teased,
To please...
The senses,
With a pleasure to release.

Who practices abstinence.
Who practices abstinence.

There's always talk about...
The getting of sex.
Yet...
Who practices abstinence.
Yet who practices abstinence.

There's always talk about...
An innocence to protect.
Yet...
Who practices abstinence.
Yet who practices abstinence.
When the meaning's lean on doing.
And who practices abstinence...
When we're marketed to be teased,
To please...
The senses,
With a pleasure to release.

Who practices abstinence.
Who practices abstinence.
Who practices abstinence.
Who practices abstinence.
