They Lied

They told us that boys only had one thing on their mind.
They told us that only abstinence could save us.
They told us to wait until marriage
and to wait to get married.
They told us every part of the male anatomy
and then about half of our own.
They told us that some people pulled out,
but that didn't work too well.
They told us that abortion was illegal
and that we would go to Hell.
That was all they told us, and then
they told us it was our fault.
