Why would someone think that a power company would have a plain "Please leave a message" on their answering machine?

Unknown caller, unknown number, and of course in my bleary "This doesn't apply to us" I deleted the message, so there's very little way of calling back the space-case old lady and explaining that I don't know what power company she was calling, but she didn't get it at this number...
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?
