I'll Let You Know

Invite someone to join you
As you formalize your plans.
Expect to get an answer – 
Gee, I wonder how that pans!

“I’ll let you know,” he tells you,
But that doesn’t help at all,
Negating what you’d hoped to be
The purpose of your call.

What does that mean? Or better yet,
Explain exactly - when?
I’m sitting here and waiting
But don’t want to call again.

It’s really so annoying
When your plans are put on hold
‘Cause someone else has grabbed the reins
You thought that you controlled.

“I’ll let you know” is one response
I never should allow.
The next time someone says it,
I’ll say – “Let me know right now!”

    You are so right, this is perfectly related--those people are so selfish like they want to see if something better comes up!

    Sooo concise and cohesive ilene. You rocked this one. Rhyme and rhythem, spot on. Just say no or let me go, One way or the other. I ain't got time to waste on you. What, do you think I am your mother. :) No offense Mom's. :)

    I know just what you mean! They leave you hanging, (is it maybe hoping something better will come along?)
