Text:”1) Anatomists fix a specimen with chemicals to temporarily halt the decaying process. 2) They then dissect it to expose important structures. 3) All of the water is removed from the specimen by replacing it with acetone. 4) The specimen is placed into a liquid silicone mixture within a vacuum chamber. Under vacuum, the acetone becomes a gas that is completely replaced by the polymer mixture. 5) Lastly, the silicone polymer is hardened. The end result is a dry, odorless, permanently preserved specimen containing no toxic chemicals. It retains the look of the original, but functions as if it were rubber.”

Shielded from the aggressive clutches of decay

Your corpse will be completely shielded away

From behind glass your remains will safely be fixed

Beautifully lit with expensive light kits

If given the choice, surely your dead relatives would choose

To be plastinated and last forever

Just like you!”
