Baburam the Snakecharmer

Hullo there, Baburam--what have you got in there?
Snakes? Aha--and do you think there's one that you can 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 as 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 I want from what I've said,
Do let me have one, Baburam, so I could bash its head.
