Humanity in general is forever scared of him
And try as far as possible to runaway from him
Belief or disbelief will never ever dither him
In carrying out duties strictly assigned to him.
He is called by many names in different faiths
However he operates regardless of people’s faith
At the appointed hour he throws the noose right
Snatch the life system without any pity or plight.
He is said to be upright in performing his duty
There is absolutely no error or any discrepancy
He in his wisdom assigns proper place to all
That depends on the individual’s merit, overall.
Innumerable folklores are woven around him
Some depicting him as noble and venerable
Yet others describe him as ruthless and evil
But he performs his obligations without fail.
Whether one reveres him or loathes and spurns
Appointment with him is unavoidable by turns
When he arrives to take action against the chosen
There is neither bail nor surety for release known.
