Losing It

The giant grew older (as everyone will)
and started to barter his beanstalk for ill
the vultures got eager (as scavengers do)
and circled him, anxious for something to chew
but he was too stubborn (as most giants are)
to shoo off the vermin despite his last scar
and he's withered some more (as thin as can be)
a victim of arrogance mixed with ennui.
