How I became Undead…

I was conceived inside a petri dish
my father an eye dropper –
my mother a couple of frozen eggs
pulled from an egg bank hopper
I do not know who I look like,
though my head is quite pliable –
and mother has been long dead
to ask her – I’d look the fool –
Some seem to find me rather strange
with character marked as odd
because I prefer hanging in dark labs
with pieces of now dead bods
but all undead are different, with
where and with whom they choose to roam
and for me being (dead or undead)
a petri dish will always be my home…….

    This is quite bizarre. A prose poem, I think. I like the bookends of the petri dish. It sounds like a government experiment gone wrong ( and yet it’s right).
    Very thoughtful piece.
