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.

The Move (Katherine Stelly Watson-Lafayette, LA)

Grandmother visited me in a dream last night
Wearing a pink jump suit and a curious smile
Driving a pink Cadillac convertible
Her sweatband accented her beehive do
She drove by in slow soundless motion
Her words were inaudible
But I heard her
She said, “Relax…”
A pink jump suit
Clouds and a Cadillac
Taking it easy
Happy to know she likes her new place.
