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.

Rope Burn (Samuel Jones-Bastrop, LA)

  • "Rope Burn"
    Pluck all the flowers
    From my space
    That is constantly in bloom--
    I won't stop you.
    Not to mention,
    It would only make room
    For you to color all my robes
    From crisp white to soft black.
    I won't prevent you
    From prying
    That nut
    (Once hard to crack).
    Just like Janet Jackson suggested
    In her song "Rope Burn,"
    I too have a confession:
    I am ready to learn.
