On the subject of the poem, I thought it was terrible. I made it about three and a half stanzas in and then scrolled down past it before my eyes started bleeding. It reads like pretentious softcore pornography, relying on the stereotype that black women are demanding about their own pleasure and implies that the author is a fantastic lover because he touches the woman with a part of him other than his dick. The teacher should be shot for corrupting the aesthetic tastes of the future generation.

The teacher is totally trying to slime his way into the girl's panties. There are a hundred less sleazy ways in which he could have given her the poem if it related to her work.

As for sexual content for high school students, you can pretty safely assume that they have been exposed to worse. They know enough to judge when they are legitimately being given work, and when their teacher is just trying to bone them. You can also assume that their parents will interpret your actions in the worst light possible. Assigning Lolita to your class is fine if you're trying to make a point and willing to fight. Calling one student into your office, giving her your well worn private copy, and having The Joy of Sex be the next book on your bookshelf... not so okay.

Hmm. Fair enough. I guess I just interpreted differently. :)

That said, I didn't think it was a good poem in general. I think it's extremely poorly-written.

And yeah, the teacher is a sleaze.
