Created by those in charge with no thought to the induced stress.
Always set within short spaces of time.
They drain a person
Squeezing out every drop of joy, patience, and energy.
Long minutes turning into hours
Spent in front of the computer
Creating a band across your forehead and a burning in your eyes.
A heartfelt sigh when completed.
The rejuvenation begins -
Until the next looms on the horizon.
What do you feel about deadlines?
