Paperwork Reproduction

We've been dealing with far too many minus reports,
the ones that need supervisor attention for phone goon
improvement.

Stressy College Chick: "Fucking minuses."
Me: "They do that? They copulate and reproduce?"
Stressy College Chick: *snicker*
Me: "Wait: that's why we have so many of them!"
Stressy College Chick: *pounds desk* "We need to spay
and neuter our minuses!"
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
