It also seems to resemble Blake's mocking attitude toward religion, or at least fundamentalism.
Whenever I hear a politician speaking strongly for or against abortion, all I hear is, "I have no idea how to fix the economy!"

Incubus/Succubus

What have I become?
I am a creature of dread;
Needing the blood-warmth of love,
To keep my soul undead -
And unalive.

Long years ago
When I offered you my being,
The fire in my heart
Died - yet I survive,
In a living hell.

For you stole my soul:
You drained it of its life.
And though I thought it ‘love’,
Your kiss bit like a knife -
Steel-sharp.

Your lips were pale and chill;
Your heart icy and still;
You drank your hungry fill,
Then, sated, cast aside 
An empty husk.

Love made me want to please,
Surrendering to your need,
That nothing could appease.
Not even my essence –
Lamia!

Now tainted with your need,
On love I dare not feed,
Lest in a selfish greed
Others such as we be begotten -
O fatal gift!

[The poem speaks of deep and dark areas where a conjunction of souls can have destructive repercussions – perhaps forever.  Who can put a name to this?]
Is maith le mo chat na Francaigh!  Is ban-chat fhrancach í.

I found this poem, which I wrote in middle school, while looking for info on something I do not wish to elaborate upon. It is perhaps the greatest piece of prose ever written

The Balloon Slide
When I went down the steep slide
On the blue and red mat
I was scared of the height
But I decided
It's just a multi-colored balloon
So what could go wrong?
Wind blew on my face
It was so much fun
I climbed back to the top of the ladder
And "wheeeeeeed" down
