Attrition: Master, am I galling?

A brace, before this poem you never were!

Please take from me this page,
     focussing on the term attrition
Used by many a linguist sage,
     seeking a term for detrition

when coders have more time,
     a much better fitting epigram.

May I cast a verse, committed so beings might see
Newly pleasing summaries, happily informing, and oh but imparted free?
Scrape or regret look all too manifest. But is rubdown?
Corrosion, chafe? - or abrasion, friction? Oops! I neglected rundown!
I reckon penitence and certainly depletion, but happily ought I
