Ululation - Poem by Kumarmani Mahakul
Ululation is heard at the time of cruel death,
Umpteen People ululate from heart depth.
Unbearable pain it is for everyone sure,
Unavoidable is death no one can cure.
Unanticipated death comes to all at any time.
Unbidden it is, it hugs everybody without crime.
Unconcern is obtained people do think,
Unctuously it is true for present life link.
Undeniably resolves go with soul after death,
Undying is soul but body is dying when no breath.
Ungovernable sword can do no harm, nor the fire,
Uptight water can’t sink nor fly away the violent air.
Uptake we should have as man is truly mortal,
Ululation we mustn’t have as soul is immortal.
