ant crisis slowing to a crawl...

Spent dinnertime on my knees on the floor smashing ants with a small hammer as my nephew cowered on a chair with his pbj bagel (out of bread) and shrieked.

Now he's in bed watching Pokemon and I've got the worst of the ants cleared up. Bed's a safe place from ants.
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?
