Imaginary Songs

grifyn has some of the scariest dreams: a song, "Stick the Cherry Twizzler in Your Ear (Because You Like It)", a collaboration between Bjork and Radiohead.

Now I can't escape the feeling that someone, somewhere, should make this song into something like a reality.

I hear rasping whispers in a long tunnel. What do you hear?
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?

-- "The Question Song", Anne McCaffrey
