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.

Melancholy’s Quarters (Skyra Francesca Rideaux-Carencro, LA)

countenance of ebony, misnomer midnight. 
a collision of past and future,
epitomizing the age of fear,
the hour of inky darkness,
sufferings’ hate.
quarter past
embodying the shell of the skeleton that rides the pale horse,
the locale of angers’ tranquility,
the shadow that swallows the light,
 the purgatory of sleeps nightmare.
Half past  
symbolizing life’s secrets
cuddled between wet sheets of deception and betrayal,
the devil’s symphony that harks upon the tempest
with whispers of violent beauty
quarter ‘til
I am the end of all; the beginning of nothing
times in essence,
the infinite loneliness of life
12:59… sixty’s eternal silence
signifying I am still but only an hour
