SUCCUBUS

SUCCUBUS

Succubus, a female demon,

Often encountered when dreaming…

Temptress extraordinaire

A seductress rare,

Sexual exploits scheming.

In olden times attacked men

Who were often grateful then…

for this hot date

Who couldn’t wait

Until any enticement brought in!

There also were incubus men,

Who showed up seducing women…

The story goes

That libido slows

From too many times with them!

Modern times  changed

The meaning for gender-same…

Her hot date

She shivers for of late,

Until the next that date came.

Alas I’ve dreamed mermaids as thus,

My adolescent succubus…

Never really happened

With one so nicely sharpened,

An adolescent dream went bust!
