Assorted Chickabirding

Having that conversation with Darkside's mother the other night was very interesting to me. I feel like I'm growing grey feathers. Roommatesister pointed out some of the current financial disadvantages of the military to his mom. This was a good thing. For someone in her family, being a truck driver was more financially stable than going into the military.

I'm planning for Responsibility. I'm nesting.
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?
