Manuscript Status

Where, oh where, has my manuscript gone?

Where, oh where, can it be?

With its word count cut short and its review time long

Where, oh where, can it be?

I worked so hard

I worked so long

Off it went

Off it’s gone

When will it come back to me?

Days and weeks

Months, a year

When will it re-appear?

I think I see it

No, a mirage

I’m waiting for you, fingers crossed.
