Ahh, high school.

A friend's school was evacuated because of "a bomb threat and several roosters".

You know, because the one just wasn't enough.

I know that most people find me weird for finding roosters very cuddly animals. I find roosters more pettable than puppies, because roosters are only pecky and flappy and scratchy, and I know how to hold them firmly so they mostly won't. Oh, and occasionally they're poopy, but, you know, that's what large rags are for. But puppies are wet.

But both a bomb threat and several roosters -- overkill. Honestly, where's the subtlety? In my day it was just that one kid's Halloween costume...
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?
