Got the idea for this one after reading "Another Note". Beyond Birthday described something as being rootless which sparked an idea.

The chain can bare the weight
Until there's a weak link

There will be water in the lake
Until the thirsty need to drink

The tree will stand its ground
Until it becomes rootless

A task is worth the time
Until it becomes fruitless

The machine will serve its purpose
Until a newer model is found

A bird is free to fly
Until its wings are clipped and bound

The arrow will stay on course
Until the bow has strayed

The man fails to rest
Until his debt is payed
