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.

Intrusive Headware (Rachel Jackson- Lafayette, LA)

A tight cap has encompassed my skull
for a month
or two
or six.
It squeezes my thoughts
to a dangerous realm
where they face the parasite worry
and oh too often succumb to it.

Thinking back to times without the dreadful cap,
I squirm and I peel at its ridges.

My hairs seek liberation!
My eyebrows feel encroached upon!
It's warm outside! I need no cranial covering!

It is time for your departure, cap,
that weights my every daydream.
I'd love your demise
but a toss in the closet will do.

Now why don't you let loose the band
you've got wrapped round my forehead.

I, promise, then to find you quite a nice hook.
