A Proposal  (with PSA addendum)
On a starry summer night,
lying next to each other
on a soft grassy hill,
you take hold of my hand
and whisper into my ear:
I’ve been two weeks on the Pill—
which according to Wikipedia means
that we can now have unprotected sex
while limiting my risk of pregnancy to
as low as 3 in 1000, or 0.3%.


A Proposal  (with additional commentary)

On a starry summer night,
lying next to each other
on a soft grassy hill,
you take hold of my hand
and whisper into my ear:
I’ve been two weeks on the Pill—
though if we have sex you should
still wear a condom because that last
girl you were with was a complete bitch,
and I don’t want to catch one of the many
venereal diseases she probably gave you.

A Proposal  (TV promo version)

On a warm late-winter night,
lying next to each other
on a somewhat grassy hill,
you take hold of my glove
and whisper into my ear:
We should head back soon;
I don’t want to miss the return
of the beloved NBC show ‘Community’
on Thursday, March 15th at 8/7 central!


A Proposal  (post-Rapture version)






Hey, where did you go!?!
