Filky noodling

Scampi, possibly by Weebl.

Drains, from the perspective of Miles Vorkosigan.
I've cleaned drains, I've cleaned them with my men
I've cleaned drains, some odd things go in them
Like leaves, sticks, dirt, bodies, pastries, rubbish,
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?
