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.

The King Has Arrived (Samuel Jones-Batrop, LA)


With a soft breath
And a long step,
The King has arrived:
Rose gold, rose hair,
Rose skin, rose lips,
And the darkest of
New Moon eyes.
He can see directly
Inside of you.
It is a blessing
As well as an art:
When he looks into you,
What he sees
Is the current state of one's heart.
He can see the joy,
He can see the pain--
All the feelings
To which you are devout.
If there is any love
Left deep inside,
He is sure to draw it all out.
"Long live the King!"
His subjects shout
With rose mouths
Conveying their rose thoughts.
Little do they know that
The King, himself,
Has his very own heart
Unsought.
