NEDERLAND, Texas – A freshman math teacher has resigned after parents and school administrators say he read a sexually explicit Valentines Day poem to students.

According to parents, the unidentified Nederland High School teacher read a “joke” poem about the biblical Adam and Eve having sex.

The poem includes an ending with the reader in essence inviting the listener to have sex, too.

The Texas district released a statement Friday saying the incident occurred Wednesday.

“It starts out with Adam and Eve in the garden,”  parent Jerry Windham tells 12 News Now.

“He might need to go back and study his Bible if he’s got one, if not he needs to get one and see what it’s really about.”

The Beaumont Enterprise published what parents say is the poem:

In the Garden of Eden,
As everyone knows,
Lives Adam and Eve,
Without any clothes.

In this garden,
Were two little leaves,
One covered Adam’s,
One covered Eve’s.

As the story goes on,
Never the less to say,
The wind came along,
And blew the leaves away.

At the sight,
Adam did stare,
There was Eve’s treasure,
All covered with hair.

And wonder came,
Under Eve’s eyes,
As Adam’s thing,
Started to rise.

They found a spot,
That suited them best,
A nice big tree,
Where they began to rest.

Her legs spread wider,
And wider apart,
While thrill after thrill,
Came into her heart.

The head of Adam’s thing,
Peeked into the hole,
And filled her with passion,
Beyond her control.

Backward and forward,
His thing did slide,
And Eve’s treasure,
Was all wet inside.

The joy was good,
She wouldn’t let loose,
Until Adam’s thing,
Was all out of juice.

Then down through the years,
People did screw,
And now it is time,
For me and you.

So pull down your pants,
And lay in the grass,
Cause I’m in the mood,
For a piece of that ASS!

“Don’t know about you, but I don’t consider Adam and Eve a joke, especially in this content. I cannot even believe an educator can think this particular poem was appropriate. This has no literary value whatsoever,” she writes.

“It’s awful what’s happening to the morals,” parent Roseanne Lalko tells 12 News Now. “Definitely this person doesn’t need to teach anymore, ever.”

“They’re there to get an education this is not educating them,” another parent, Jerry Windham, says. “Children know enough without him having to push it, it’s not right.”

The school district is refusing to identify the teacher.

Nederland High School principal Steven Beagle would only say the teacher used “inappropriate language in class,” according to KXAN.

“Immediately, I conducted a thorough investigation of the complaint along with other administrative staff, and we determined that the incident occurred,” Beagle wrote in a letter to parents.
