{A poem about a number of #girlboss’ I’ve worked with, who weren’t too nice to the other women on their teams}

I understand it’s harder for us, once risen to the top
Trust me, I have experience, have had everything you’ve got
We’re often disrespected, our ideas cooed at as they scoff
But really they’re the idiots, threatened by women’s thoughts
It’s true we have to harden, to shed off our soft shell
Have to work twice, more, as hard, before they’ll allow us to excel
But still, I have a question, and I think it’s fair to ask
Who told you #girlboss translates, into ‘be a total twat?’
