Silent Witness


Kid-who-works-with-me-now, you silly thing.

Can't you witness like the Cute Desk Guy, Darkside, and sionainn witness? Just by being who you are and being the sort of steady, dependable, and uplifting person that people go to and want to be like? Handing out literature, however cute, to people wearing all black and stars, is really rather rude.

Smacks upside the head in Christ,
your neighbor and now co-worker
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
