Have gone from A Metaphor Gone Metastatic: Azure Lunatic's Journal to A Metaphor Gone Metastatic: keepin' it theoretical

As always, Lois McMaster Bujold (lmbujold) coined the phrase "a metaphor gone metastatic" in A Civil Campaign, in the musings of a man with multiple personalities.

More recently (tonight, in fact), agent139 provoked what would have been a major soda-spew, had only my mouth been armed, by writing:
my hip-hop saying for the evening:

keep'n it theoretical.

(as opposed to keep'n it real. i drop idealist metaphysics non-stop, yeaaah.)
That makes me feel all warm and fuzzy, y'know?
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
