Return of the Slack

Bob is strong with us today. It is now 11:33, and the computer/phone system has been down since 9:25 or earlier.

In the meantime, I'm pretty. This is because of laundry day. A V neckline looks much better on me than my usual high collar.

System may be coming up.
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?
