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 Honesty of Nature (Samuel Jones-Bastrop, LA)

"Wow. . ." I said
As I analyzed
The road-kill corpse of an armadillo.
"I could have sworn it was just alive yesterday."
I don't know which I noticed first:
It's smudge or it's smell.
But either way,
It was something that I had to witness.
"Here today, gone tomorrow," death,
Is one of the many messages
That Nature spells out clearly to us
And resolutely refuses to censure.
Nature shows us everything.
I mean, fog doesn't rise
Every time wildthings reproduce
So that their "peepees" and "hoohas" don't show.
And the clouds in the sky don't spell out,
"TV- MA"
As a lion tears a gazelle the fuck apart.
And to think, we are also a product this same Nature.
What makes us so sensitive?
