The ugliness of death is depicted through her pitilessness, cruelty, non-respect of humans, animals and plants. Death is incorruptible, and it fears no man.



Death, you are everything ugly

Unavoidable doom you are

You are mean and unfair

For you rob the cradle

Scare everyone, young and old

So you claim your potency


Death, you aren’t surely corruptible

Else kings and presidents would survive

You courageously knock at their doors

You owe no respect to anyone

And no one hides from you

For you and your soldiers are vigilant


Friendless and brotherless you are

People, animals and plants fear you

For you remove one by one heartlessly

Children on breast you sway

For you have no heart and brain

Yet you know who to take today


Death, had I had power

I’d create a court or an army

That could surprise you

By hunting you day and night

Defeat and root you out the world

So broken hearts are mended
