Saturday Riff: Hashtags

Hashtags
They call out
Copy me
Like me
Follow me
Notice me.
Hashtags
Badges of hope.
We all wear them
To be liked
To be noticed
To be part of the crowd
To be popular.
The Ancient of Days put his hashtag on a hill
Stained red
Ragged and rejected
Tatty and torn
Shabby and shattered.
Yet people took notice
And still do
