Banded Krait by Paula Puolakka

Paula Puolakka | Dec 2nd, 2019 | poetry | No Comments


My original tongue
was cut
when I went to school and university
by Boomers, Joneses,
and the self-satisfied teachers of Gen X
who were not interested in cultivating
the students’ God-given gifts,
but to create the flocks of groupie zombies
to hail their pseudohistorical and utopian ideas
and biased studies funded by medical companies.

My original tongue
grew back
thank you to the few still living gentlemen of
Silent generation
who did not try to oppress me
or openly judge my way of speaking,
but saw me as a good sport
and someone who could carry on their legacy,
inherited from the gentlemen
of Lost and Greatest generation.

My original tongue
is the tongue of the banded krait
– Bungarus fasciatus –
who I probably was in some past life.
I’m not typically seen,
but if someone harasses me or
those dear to me,
I will appear from the darkness
and bite.

Poet Bio

Paula Puolakka is a Beat poet, writer, and MA (History of Science and Ideas.) The way how she understands the circle of Life and Death, the world we are living in would be much better if reincarnation would be taught in the schools and universities. It’s pretty logical that if you knew you were about to be born back into this material world, you would not want to destroy Nature (in this life) and fill the planet with technological, etc. rubbish. But reincarnation is a joke to many people, and that’s why many of the bad things have been and are happening. It’s also a common mistake to talk about Homo sapiens as one united group of human beings, but if we do talk about the core programming of every man and woman, then we are talking about a self-destruction sequence. The only reason the world is in the current state is because “Homo sapiens” was programmed to commit group suicide. The life task for every individual trapped inside the concept (of Homo sapiens) was to learn how to bypass the programming, but the majority failed miserably. In this case, group effort was necessary to save the God-given purity of the battlefield called Earth from the deceiving forces of evil. As a group, we failed, but some individuals who did crack the code and fought well were and are permitted to access Cloud Nine.
