Success, of a sort.

I have succeeded in making the set of circular transformative connections starting from cowboy and going around through the topics of the source material back to cowboy again.

The progression: Cowboy turned to husband. Husband turned to barfly. Barfly sold the Chevy. Chevy sold for baby. Baby grown to cowboy. Some people never learn; when will they ever learn.

Since they were hits together, and they taste of female desperation in the Barrayaran South, I will forever associate "Where Have All The Cowboys Gone?" with "Sunny Came Home" and "Birmingham". There's a playlist somewhere in there. I'm too tired to think of the rest of it now, though.
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?
