The other day at work, I told Trader Joe's Queen Monitor about my cunning conversational tool for avoiding political differences and patching up any disgruntlement over same: offer up Kermit the Frog as a better candidate for the position. Almost any political position could be done, and done better, by Kermit. This is because he's more competent, honest, and likable than 99.9% of the political candidates out there. People may disagree on the actual candidates and issues, but they can usually agree on Kermit. And nothing says "efw" more than people arguing loudly about who would be better as President, Kermit or Big Bird...
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?
