Past gods...

I was hanging out with Figment the other day -- I think this was Monday, right before the Car Incident, and reading through a rare AD&D book of his, one with stats on gods (the one that's got the stats for the Michael Moorcock and the Lovecraft gods vs. the newer editions that don't have that after the people associated with same bitched about it) and I realized, where the fuck is Mercury?

So I asked.

The answer I got back: I was the god of your childhood. You've grown up now, and you've been chosen.

Spooky, that.
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?
