Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?

PG-13

Some of the sexual references may go over the head of the little ones in the room, but we can't help but discern a lot of sexual metaphors and innuendos in this poem. They're not right there on the surface, but dig just a little deeper and you'll definitely find a PG-13 poem. Maybe you shouldn't read this one to your little brothers and sisters at bedtime.
