Subject:Needs help translation of Chinese written on a painting

Not sure what's the subject of the painting and the Chinese written on it. An information is greatly appreciated.

reproduction of a Shitao leaf from an album in the Metropolitan Museum, partial translation is:

"Once Wang Anjie* presented me with a poem, saying: "Get some spring water in your copper bowl and roast some taro on the earthen stove." He truly understood me. But what a laughable, uncouth person I am! This year I greedily obtained some huge taro roots. They were too large to be roasted in a short time, so I ate them all partly raw. Can you guess what the temperature is inside my stomach?"
