The Traitor

on a dusty road
 a vehicle make them loose
and jet over your path
flying dust don’t lie
to color your hair
like the iron’s deadly rust
.
life is sometimes stalked by dust
where luster is fogged to dull
and it needs a daily wipe
to shine the gloss that it once had
.
rust clings to steel or iron
that’s harder than wood or clay
it’s his own skin that kills
and be considered a junk for the rolling mill
.
 life has shortened  the body where it grows
scrapping them would mean a prisoner in death row
the sight of what has  become so thin 
the steel or iron, the might it once lived
has a traitor of his own skin
