Attempting A Staccato

Back when I lived in Tallahassee, I had the pleasure of attending Black on Black Rhyme as much as my schedule allowed. While in attendance, I was able to see many different styles of poetry. One style was a phrase, which started off with one or two words. It was sort of like a punch line. It's called a Staccato. Every time I went several poets would get on stage and do a few staccato's. It was so cool and I wanted to try it out. However, I was afraid I would not be as good as them.

However, recently I decided to give staccatos a try. Below is my first attempt at one.

Very First Staccato
"No Kissing/ If you kiss you get pregnant/ So I didn't kiss him/Instead I let him stick his dick in me."

What do you think? Was it good?

FYI- Meaning of Staccato-  "marked of or composed of disconnected parts or sounds; cut short briskly"
