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.

Stitched Up Heart (Louis Toliver Jr- Swartz, LA)

They say the heartbroken can never love again
Most are destined to ruined futures and tear-dried skin
Their memories become crumbled up pictures in a trash bin
But they don’t know my heart and where it’s been

I have a stitched up heart and I, again, will love
I believe in roses, violets, Romeo, and all of the above
I see hearts filled with Cupid, Aphrodite, and a smiling dove
I know my heart will be given to the person I dream of

Love is always hopeful if, especially, you have a sewing kit
To myself, today, and tomorrow I shall forever commit
Those who live best say that love is always constant, so don’t forget
It’s not too late to stitch up your heart and put up with life’s shit
