Just Checking In

Sending a priority email to my boss an hour ago

A quick reply would be prized as time is my foe


Facing an ever-approaching deadline

The pressure is building—not so fine!


Writing one more email might do the trick

“Just checking in” doesn’t sound so slick


Hearing no reply yet by the middle afternoon

Would another email bring an answer soon?


Sensing desperation as the clock winds down

Frustration fills my heart with a gloomy frown


Composing again—Sorry, but I must persist

“Just checking in” again, I must clearly insist


Receiving an email, which is long overdue

An automated message comes to my view


Using “Just checking in” as the subject line

These three words “really” are never fine!
