Death Lab for Cutie

To a world which for "its" were intended,
Comes a girl, her back "Fritzed" and distended
Over test tubes she labors
'Midst detestable neighbors,
Till she's hurled down a pit, her life ended.

Hunchbacked Nina (Jane "Poni" Adams) assists the mad doctor in House of Dracula (Erle C. Kenton; 1945). "Fritzed" refers to Fritz, the hunchback played by Dwight Frye in Frankenstein (1931). I have a hunch this is another of our Dwight Frye-Days.
