I am layered in linens, 
let my secrets unravel
exhumed me alchemist!
that my words may travel

not over my tongue
or skeletal remains 
rather etched in brittle teeth,
you'll find my name

long buried and bound am I 
my mysteries concealed
awaiting the alchemist,
waiting for science to reveal

secrets of the ancients,
the history of mankind
expose the ensconced,
I dare you!
lay bare the truth
of the grand design!
