Explore (an acrostic poem)

Everything in this tomb reeked of antiquity

Xenon lamp in hand, Rachel peered closer to the relief

Pomegranates punctuated with palm fronds trialed to a sarcophagus

Lovingly she thought about her fame and how she kept this whole thing to herself

Oblivious to a small vibration that sent dust falling from the ceiling

Rachel went to leave, but the tunnel back was now blocked by a ton of stone

Eventually someone would find her remains there as well
