I am not a Hashtag…
Huh, like I’m some keyboard hag.

Don’t label my being!
There’s something you’re not seeing.

I’ll not be your topic.
Your view is quite myopic.

If you are my friend,
then careful what you send.

At the very top,
don’t address me with that prop.

Respect me with Ma’am,
because, that is what I am.
