At the plasma center today, lying on a bed watching my blood drain away, I'm hardly thinking at all about the pay. Mostly I just like to watch my blood drain away. But when I think about the job on which I spend my every day, seems like this is more honest work anyway.
I've more than half a mind to sell my eggs, 'cuz Lord knows, I don't want them anyway. And if the law and my friends all didn't say that I'd be wrong to take money to help some poor sod get laid... well, when I think about the job on which I spend my every day, seems like that would be more honest work anyway.
If the world wants to take my body and let me keep my mind, it doesn't seem like such an awful trade. 'Cuz when I think about the job on which I spend my every day, selling blood is more honest work.
