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.

Self-Display (Louis Toliver Jr-Swartz, LA)

O’ Louis, O’Louis
Where ever art thou Louis?

I mockingly hold my hand faintly to my forehead
I am the Juliet with no Romeo

At least I am no star-crossed lover
Instead I am a star-aligned fighter

My body is fully on display for you to read
I give my stories to you to do as you please

But remember that stories are always shallow at the surface
When they are not penetrated and told by the source

I bow to you
And curtesy to me

Let the play begin with good direction
Now that the dress rehearsal has ended
