' Dear Aunty', is an alter ego of author, singer, public speaker and writer Kartanya Martinez. Aunty responds to fan questions for advice or opinion. Aunty is outspoken, a tad naughty and often responds to requests as opinion, satire, and humour. Aunty is always watching and listening.
This poem and essay is a draft of work I started as a child (when I was known as a "wealthy heiress or heir" in the United States and someone told me I actually own the Liberty Bell and protect it. I am not the person who struck a bell in Arlington County once, as a woman in particular, but I am beginning to write about the topics that concern women, especially when told as children that we actually "own" something, and can touch it - when in society, the rules are against it and no one mentions that.

I've had more 'frenemies' in my life than friends. Didn't know they were betraying me until too late. Luckily, I wised up pretty good over time.
Here' a little fun I had thinking about those who brought the term 'toxic people' to life for me =)
