You’ve had your time for basking in the sun,
But everything must die, even a giant.
Your face is pale β€” your race is almost run β€”
No longer are you fearless and defiant.
You once were dominant and self-reliant,
But now the dwarves have tied you to the ground.
You have become pathetic and compliant β€”
With bonds of your own making you are bound.
The dwarves all cheer β€” a little man is crowned β€”
He reads his speech β€” the writing’s on the wall.
His dwarfish slurring words declared profound
By all the dwarves who engineered your fall.
You breathe your last; the sky is dull and grey.
A scribe records: a giant has died this day.

β€” D.N. O’Brien
