Affording tickets to Alaska

After Mama explained it to me, I don't feel guilty about the idea of going to Alaska both this summer and sometime over winter break. You see, FatherSir is funnelling my college payments through the credit card that gives him Alaska Airlines frequent flyer miles.


One racks up quite a lot of miles quite quickly that way.
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?
