Wake Like an Egyptian

He slumbered alone in his crypt
Then summoned, he rose (this guy flipped)
For centuries napping
And then his unwrapping
A mummy with toenails unclipped.

Bramwell Fletcher reads the scroll of Thoth, waking up Boris Karloff, The Mummy (Karl Freund, 1932). Title by Donald B. Benson, still awaiting his wake-up call.
