Cell Poem

I am bacteria, unicellular

Cytoplasm, ribosomes, and DNA, some of what I acquire

Less complex than a multicellular

However, being a plant cell is what I truly desire

I wish I could say goodbye to the life of a prokaryotic

Perhaps become chloroplast, converting sunlight to energy

Abdicate my position for something exotic

No longer being a nonentity

A whimsical ambition

To be a nucleus containing cell

An unlikely transition

For me to become a membrane bound organelle

I remain a prokaryotic cell

But what I’d truly like is the life of a plant cell
