This Insister and the Out-Sister

Some poems take a long time to write. This one took about a month. (I took a 29-day break in between the first and second verses.)
The Insister and the Out-Sister 
She insisted on careless key twisting.
Now she's mad and locked out and it's misting.
And her sister's locked in...
Who's "in-sister" again,
If the "out-sister" did the insisting? 
The out-sister became more demanding.
To the door took a tool used for sanding
To sand clear through the wood.
The in-sister is good,
But her sister's the one who's out standing.
