He stumbled on his footstool and broke his little toe.
The giant groaned and grumbled, couldn't sleep a wink.
Along came an elfish man and offered him a remedy.
The mixture worked and all the pain was gone in a blink
The giant thought, 'Now I must reward this scruffy runt.
Can't have him at my table, what would the neighbors think.
I'll send him a nice basket with fruit and maybe wine to drink.'
To his surprise it was returned and with a note attached:
'The act itself is my reward, with me you have no debt,
But let me know if I'm required, be it toe or neck.'
