A middle school teacher in Boynton Beach, Florida is facing a three day suspension after using uncensored Lil Wayne lyrics for an assignment. 

According to South Florida's WPTV-TV, the 8th grade teacher handed out copies of the lyrics to "Weezy's" "Six Foot, Seven Foot" and reportedly told students to find examples of figurative language. 

The song contains explicit sexual themes, as well as racial epithets and other graphic language. 

In a statement, the school's principal explained that the teacher turned to Lil Wayne after students had trouble finding literary devices in works by Shakespeare and Edgar Allen Poe.  Prior to this incident, the teacher had a clean record.
