Dunderheads in the break room

Listen, old man.
If you want this country to stay "the good guys", damn skippy we should be making a fuss over prisoner abuses, even when people on the side of the prisoners are killing soldiers attached to this country.
Once it gets down to a contest of who can be more vile, everyone's lost.

Fuck you.
I would wish that you be taken prisoner by someone who has no government looking over their shoulder to try and make sure that the captors don't use their imaginations in making the prisoners unhappy, to point out to you why we and everyone else should be making an almighty fuss over prisoner abuses, but I don't think I'd want to wish that on anyone.

In the interests of not getting fired for strangling someone my father's age, I kept my mouth shut and I stayed a good twenty feet away.
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?
