I think Blake examines the whole spectrum of childhood, innocence and adulthood. He uses satire to uncover certain truths about each stage. In the end he feels that adults are largely responsible for what they condemn. Institutions like the Church and adulthood are viewed through a satirical lens to show how much damage they have done in London and in general.
