Death is also personified.

Alliteration is employed in lines 3, 4, five and 7: Hapless Helpless, Contemptuous Carnivore, Swift-soaring style.
Rhetorical questions are also used in lines 7, eight and 9:

How many victims have gone unscathed?
All these questions depict the inscrutable nature of death.
