Depending on a couple of factors, it might be a forging.

Digger Doug, true that..

I wonder how it ended up out on the old rail bed.. TRain crash or derailment?

If I defend myself I am attacked.

My meaningless thoughts are showing me a meaningless world.

My attack thoughts are attacking my invulnerability.

I'd like to think of something smart, but I don't want to hurt myself.

Not sure how it ended up there, but I'm glad it did. For now it's out in the landscape rocks in front of my shop as yard art with some other stuff until I figure out what to do with it.
