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.

Night and Day (Annette Redmond Walters-Lafayette, LA)

Perpetual light
a luminous sight
searing with might
on this glorious night
so heavenly bright
steady in flight
a fluttering sprite
dancing in spite
of endearing height
in glittering white
the shadows you fight
with an arrogant bite

Exceptional ray
a spirited way
all on display
on this beautiful day
so pretty in play
in delicate sway
a flapping jay
keeping at bay
the dampening spray
in feathery grey
on wicked you prey
with a groundless bray
