No Ma’am

You with your Southern charm,
Don’t really mean me any harm.
Just being polite,
But it doesn’t feel right,
When you call me ma’am.
Please understand,
Why it doesn’t appeal.
It makes me feel,
Truth be told,
A little old.
So please pick another.
‘Cause when say “‘scuse me, ma’am,”
I look around to find my mother.

Words, words, glorious words! Give me all of your words!
