work: the system is down

Computers crashed bigtime. I lost the connection to the mothership in the middle of a survey. The young woman on the other end of the phone was patient. and I got the relevant info down to call back.

When that program redscreens without us logging out, we have big problems... (Screen turns red when telnet connection drops. Connection not supposed to drop w/o logout.)
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?
