Necromancer

One studies death,
That one might understand life.
The necromancer of the laboratory,
Works under a canopy of bright lights
And magnifying lenses.
He studies the body before him,
Expectant of learning,
Not only how it lived,
But how its killer lived, as well.

Thus does the coroner weave his spell
Of wound to thought, thought to wound,
Did the body lie where it fell,
Or was it moved?
What story do the bones tell,
And can it be proved?
Or will it remain a stagnant mystery,
"Cause of death indeterminate"
Awaiting time and serendipity?
