The Lure of Books

Instead of being a Bad Little Fayoumis and reading fanfic, I was a Good Little Fayoumis and instead read Pterry's Monstrous Regiment. I shall now adopt "thinking with one's socks" as a good description of some of garnetdagger's more impulsive and dangerous moments.

Compares favorably to Mulan and the Honor Harrington books.
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?
