One of my favorite pieces reborn and revisited yet again! It is my signature poem and title of one of my books and CD.

Unprotected Poetry V. 5.0

Daring_duoby Larry Jaffe19 Oct 2013

I had unprotected poetry last night
it was unexpected you know
spontaneous and we did not use anything
we just went at it to keep the mood.

It was incredible but not safe
and now I am worried
cause it can be infectious and dangerous
to say things without a condom.

It could be disastrous to speak without protection

A guy should not have unprotected poetry
he should take more responsibility than that
not just leave it up to the girl.

It was so irresponsible of me
to have unprotected poetry
to not even ask or consult
her about poetry control methods
she might be using or gulp not using.

What if she gets poetically pregnant
and wants to have my poem?

Or what if she has some kind
of poetically transmitted disease
you know PTD –
and we have to wait
and see what happens
taking regular poetry tests
to see if we’ve got it.

But wow
we actually did it last night –
We had poetry…

How many people
in this day and age
have pure unprotected poetry?

We should be thankful for that
after all it was good poetry
we both really enjoyed it!

We soared like angels
without wings
never coming down
just coming
poetically, that is.

But what a high
to hit that climax
and feel like you
will never be mortal again…

Now that you’ve had
unprotected poetry
who can protect you?

Now that you’ve had
unsafe poetry
and want to do it
again and again
and again…

Cause it don’t feel
the same
with a poetic condom
blocks off the all feeling
and the flow.

And the words
the words
are stopped short
with safe protected poetry
and I will never
write that way again!
