Checking Up

I’m waiting
for someone
to come
it’s nothing this waiting
this waiting for someone
this waiting for someone
to come
he may come am
may come pm
when he does come
I must just be in
he’s simply checking
I’m worth what I’m getting
it’s routine this checking
you're worth what you're getting
I’m wondering heart beating
if he’ll think I’m cheating
he’s checking for cheating
and co-habitating
it’s ok they trained me
in waiting for nothing
in waiting for  nothing to come
perhaps I’ll admit
I’m unfit for work
that timing and clocking
are basically shocking
and I’ve quite lost the knack
of just going back 
day after day
in the interests of pay
he’ll go through my statement
check I’m legitimate
he won’t try to trick me
or even restrict me
he’s just here to help
to make sure I’m fit
fit to keep  waiting 
for someone to come
they're always announcing
he’s thinking of coming
coming to check up on me
they've told me it’s nothing
it’s nothing this checking
he’s coming to see how I am
it’s something this knowing
this knowing it’s nothing
that nothing is coming again
