Useless

A solid work of iron ore
is left to waste and rust
until the chain does hold no more
and crumbles into dust.

What is repeatedly in use
must be cared for and oiled.
You cannot win if you just choose
to neglect chains thus coiled.

Like this the iron loses weight
that dissolves into air.
Now wait some years and you are late:
the chain is no more there.
