"For want of a nail the shoe was lost,
For want of a shoe the horse was lost,
and for want of a horse the rider was lost,
being overtaken and slain by the enemy,
All for the want of a horse-shoe nail."

Nursery rhyme published in Poor Richard's Almanac in 1758 by Benjamin Franklin.
It is a warning of chaos.
