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.

Treasure Chest (Annette Redmond Walters-Lafayette, La)

An outcast maiden’s virtues
a witch’s jade upon my breast
a darkness among church pews
locked inside my treasure chest

Little candy apple heart
lost and improperly dressed
my hidden core pulled apart
locked inside my treasure chest

A demon’s surging black blood
a defined and hidden quest
a twisted, drooping rose bud
locked inside my treasure chest

A blurry vision of love
tucked away in a warm nest
I’m yours, a captured white dove
locked inside my treasure chest
