Kissing Schools of Thought                                 

            It was worrisome, your kissing
            When my ears tingled and
            The hairs on the back of my neck
            Began to dance and your topsy-turvy lips
            Left no holds barred
            Because I knew you must have hit the books
            Long and hard, so to speak,
            And stayed up late
            To get so good
            It would have been much easier
            No questions asked
            And fun
            But I’m not built that way, I guess
            Though come to think of it
            Until you went on strike
            I never really thought that much about
            My education
