A Glimpse into The Distant Future

For whosoever needed a part,
be it a kidney, lung, or heart,
could have it for a price—
even as Jesus had bought
our whole beings with such—
the price of a lottery ticket.
For those who needed blood,
with its magical properties
(for had not the blood of Jesus
once shed grace on Thee?),
the United Nations Blood Bank
had become a place of withdrawal for the rich
and deposit for the poor.
