Spelling Mnemonics

Coffee. FF, EE, makes you fucking hyper and you really have to pee.
Weird. Wired Weird. (The i/e order is opposite.)
Caffeine. Caffeine is Weird. (The i/e order is the same in both words.)
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?
