Which language should I Speak ?Chewing trotters in the badlands
the permanent resident of my body,
the household of tradition heaped on his back,
Wait in this evening's glow and stand still
hollers at me,
"You whore-son, talk like we do.
Talk, I tell you .!"
Picking through the Vedas
his top-knot well-oiled with ghee,
my Brahmin teacher tells me,
"you idiot, use the language correctly!".
Now I ask you which language should I speak ?
