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.

Too Bright (Chris S. Hayes, MD-Lafayette,LA)

Too bright she burns, a fragment of the fire
That flames within her eyes will immolate
The unsuspecting subject of her ire,
Reducing him to ash, a dreadful fate.

And so she shines, her brilliance a mere mask
While cowards walk around her, daring not,
Their courage insufficient to the task
Of walking though her fiery onslaught.

Until he comes, inured to pain and death,
Oblivious to all but her bright blaze,
And braves destruction in a single breath
To be incinerated by her gaze.

To ash they both are rendered by the sight
But flare again to fiery flame, too bright.
