The Louisiana Social Pledge

We pledge our allegiance to Louisiana. We will embrace what makes us and our state unique. Louisiana will be recognized as a leader and innovator of the New South. Many great leaders of the future will come from this state. And we will show both the media and politicians that we are smarter than them. We will no longer have our resources exhausted and our people used and left behind. We will work hard and play hard. We will protect each other. We will support each other. We pledge that we will do whatever we can to get these things in motion right now. We will no longer wait for a path to be cleared for us. We will clear the path ourselves. And we ain’t giving up easily. We will socialize in the real world just as well as we do on the internet…in hopes to organize ourselves effectively.

A Sonnet to My Heart (Louis Toliver Jr)

Oh America, my heart pumps love for you
But, of course, my heart bleeds for my own self more
Often I cry at the sight of anything blue
And to the thought of those thinking I’m just a manwhore

I also think of starving families, parents with no time for their kids
Kids abused at home, mainly by society
One that votes its rights away for more reality TV bids
Okay America, I get why you reject sobriety

I wear my heart on my sleeve and my back
This is my puzzle to solve, just like “why I don’t have tits?”
And why I can’t afford to buy a vowel from Pat Sajak
When my heart is as beautiful as Vanna White’s shaved armpits

Oh America, if your heart was as big as mine
You’d make it your profile pic on e-harmony online
