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.

Return of the Raven (Annette Redmond Walters-Lafayette, LA)

Remember me, the raven in your window
A hardened stare into your eyes
With lightening flashing to set you blind
What you saw, no longer there

Behold these images of native gods
Your test so now begins
Bringing a rush to shake your soul
And leave you longing more

Now fear sets in, it clouds you mind
Severing all of your senses
In one swift hit, brought to your knees
What you were, no longer are
