King of Birdbrains no more!

On Monday, King of Birdbrains quit. I took great satisfaction in telling him that today, I was not the person to talk to about quitting -- go see the Check-In person, or the Shift Ops Supervisor.

I'm sure he would have been a perfectly likable co-worker, after he got over the heavy flirtation, the poor attendance, the not performing up to standards on the phones, and the standing on chairs.
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?
