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!
