Nome De Plume - Poem by C A Lofton

Name Gamer,
haughty status-quo trickster.
Is it Miss, Ms. or Mister?
Check yourself out!
2day its what the brand's about.
Perhaps, not restrictive & bland
nor another believer's Christian hand.
Or historically touted unwise
olde Anglo-centric lies.
A moniker ought to be
an evolving expression of u/me
not some keyed computerized pool
set by a racist, sexist antiquated fool.
