The One-Armed Bandit

My assessment of casino slot machines is that while they can be interesting, and I can see the attraction that they might have ... I'm a child of the information age. I like my gratification instant and reliable.

I could seriously see myself sitting in a happy little corner of a lounge area in said casino with Bejeweled on a palmtop. But if they managed to combine Bejeweled and gambling, the results would be scary.
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?
