Ways not to wake up!

A phone call two hours before the end of the sleep cycle is no fun.
A phone call from a phone booth that is a wrong number by someone with English as a second language is less fun.
Especially when you don't realize until after you hang up that the wrong number they got was actually your cellphone.
And then when they call back to make sure it's still wrong five minutes later.
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?
