The Sting Of Death

Death why provoke us to tears?

There are lot of unfinished works

But still you pierce

What are these you have wrought?


Your unannounced visits can’t be pardoned

You lack respect for the age of victims

This is extremely disheartening

You have taking your tolls in cities

And increased graves in graveyard


Dead bodies have outnumbered Mortuaries

Lots of broken promises

Dry lands have been made Seas

From tears of successors


You have wrecked enough havoc

And now the time approaches

When your sting will no longer be felt

When our heels would not be bruised

And you would have a taste of your medicine
