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.

Lingering (Annette Redmond Walters-Lafayette, LA)

A shadow of your soul
Does so constantly remain
Enveloping me whole
Within my empty domain

I've dusted off the past
Scrubbed away the injuries
But never does it last
And still bide your courtesies

I covet what lingers
Of your sweetest suggestion
The tips of your fingers
That has left your impression

I know this too shall fade
And your traces left behind
Will grow a lighter shade
Become dimmer in my mind

But never will you die
Since always will I hold you
As my dearest ally
And I hope you'll know it's true
