BABURAM THE SNAKE CHARMER 
By Sukumar Roy (English Translation by Satyajit Ray)

Hullo, there Babu8ram – what have you got in there? 
Snakes? Aha – and do you think there’s one that you 
could spare 
You know, I’d love to have one, but let me tell you this–  
The ones that bite aren’t right for me – nor the ones 
that hiss. 

I’d also skip the ones that butt 
As well the ones that whistle 
Or the ones that slink about 
Or show their fangs, or bristle. 

As for eating habits, I think it would be nice  
To go for ones that only take a meal of milk and rice. 
I’m sure you know the kind of snake that want from 
what I’ve said, 
Do let me have one, Baburam, so I could bash its head.
