Trigger vs. the Balloons

Trigger started bouncing at the balloons during Saturday's party.

"He could just grab one of the ribbons and pull a balloon down," someone said.
"He's not smart enough to do that," someone else said.
I ran for the camera.

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?
