To quell the dread of something that I ate,
The unacquainted food whose toxic mode
With pain or death transforms us with its load.
This makes us rather bear those ills we have
Than fly to others that we know not of.
Thus caution does make cowards of us all –
I’ll never taste a lissome leg of frog
Or bloated blowfish, tasty but unsafe,
Or slice of snake sautéed with grace in grog;
Adieu to Roquefort, all the foods of France…
But NO! Food’s much too fun, I’ll take my chance,
I’ve come back to my taste and smelling senses
I’ll face the risk, my liver has defenses
My mouth awaits, my tongue is tightly tuned,
My jaw’s unclenched, my palate pertly primed –
For gustatory pleasure comes as well
With chances of a gustatory hell.
