1. The Real Snake Is Twisting In The Mouth - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

poor snake
life is equal so god says
but look at the snake
look at the snake..
it cant even walk
but slithers and always
at the lowest of place

and everywhere
the message is
it's evil, culprit of the Great Fall

everything the snake
lowly humbly takes
cane, blows and all

you can swing it, you can stretch it
you can bend it in any angle
because it's just a snake

there is a snake too
barely two inches long
yet it's the most pliable of them all
and that's the real one
where the first divine
curse should go

guarded all round
in a red glowing ruby palace
and gleaming pillars of enamel
the cunning and sly creature
in all smugness and warmth
could never get enough of the world
sweet, sour, bitter, salty, hot or cold

it could make satan of god
and god of satan and turn
the world upside down
without even having to leave home
effortless, treacherous as the Niagara Falls

    Absolutely great!
    That is why the great saint Thiruvalluvar, the author of the THIRUKKURAL observed
    'Ya kaavaaraayinum naa kaakka - kaavaakkaal
    sokaappar sollizukkuppattu'

    a poem of truth
    the grand snake a wonder
    and so beautiful
    the human
    really twisted
    and sometimes sordid
    words ripping up truth
    a fine poem (Report) Reply
