10 steps of an autopsy

With ravenous hunger I sponge down the body, throbbing with excitement. The first cut makes me shudder with anticipation, the Y incision.
I cover the face with the top flap of skin I don’t want that fucker looking at me.
Next comes the saw, almost my favourite bit, forcing my way through each rib, pulling them out one by one, savouring the moment.
Time for the organs now, I slice the connection of each piece to the body and gently remove them as one,
Now for what makes this one tick, cut my way through the brainstem, pull it out examine the worming pieces of meat that control every human urge then dunk it into formalin,
Whilst draining the intestines to rid them of any undigested food and faeces a little sadness sweeps over me knowing I am almost through,
Ripping through the stomach to examine the rest of its contents, I love the feel of bloodied cold flesh between my fingers
Gathering microscopic samples of all organs for analysis
I cut open all major blood vessels examine them lengthwise
Now done
I sew him back up so family and friends can pretend he is alive/sleeping while they say goodbye
