The Song and the DIsh

I have a song that I have not finished,
For every time I make a rhyme I can
Sense another coming close to my dish:
Feel tense as they pass my plate of food. Man
Is a strange creature that he should make such
Fuss over poor food. Yet when you are as
I have been, poor in nourishment, you may touch
Upon the greatest trove of knowledge. Has
A man ever given up what he most
Desired in a fight? or put out lite
And easy from a boxing ring to toast
Some other, all since he was full of fright?
These things are incomprehensible for
Men who must complete the song of life's chore.
