Ahh, quirks of the language

I walk past a sign every day when I go to work.

Phoenix EXTREME CAR STEREO: A LOT NAME BRAND FAMOUS: Low Price in the Town

Perhaps the only thing I can say to enhance the experience of the sign itself is that when I read it, I always hear Strongbad narrating the words that I see.

It's very probably using the grammatical structure of a language that is not English. However, in English ... yeah.
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?
