God Wants Blood

It’s why Cain killed Abel,

When Cain’s offering of crops wasn’t pleasing to God,

But Abel’s slain livestock was…

It’s why animals eat each other, just to stay alive,

A dire compulsion, inescapable until Dear Death.

It’s why Christ had to be

Whipped, and bludgeoned,

Stabbed, and eviscerated…

To pay, in a universally accepted credit.

Blood is the currency of Nature’s Exchange.

In a smaller, but somehow sharper sense,

It’s why you are here today.
