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 Questionable Legacy of Pornography (Madison Elizabeth Holland- Lafayette, LA)

The filth 
(Or beauty?)
Of a millenia
Washes over my pubescent consciousness
Business of adults
An industry older than time Something I couldn't possibly understand
Hormones already passionately raging
The last thing I needed
Was this kind of needless perversion
(Or natural expression?)
A twelve year old shouldn't have access
To the machinations of adult intimacy
My already blossoming Catholic guilt
Nailing me to a cross of scrupulosity
The impact of shameful
(Or fulfilling?)
Imprinted on my young psyche
Did it really affect my future self?
Or was it something that most kids deal with
And am I just more normal now because of that?
Or am I different and damaged
And altered beyond repair?
I don't know that labels
For a potentially damaged
(Or broadened?)
Are appropriate
