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.

Don’t Write (Vincent Pierre Cheramie- Lafayette, LA)

Poetry is for the weak at heart
and the unstable minds
for the damaged heads at best
Don’t write
Don’t even listen
Don’t write out what’s on your mind
that is only for you to hear
Don’t listen to other people’s troubles
that only makes you open up to the world
Literature has only taught us that we are bound to repeat our past mistake
to toil and wallow in our own spit
and if someone tells you the opposite, it’s a lie
inspiration is a lie
Beauty is a joke
art is piss piss
pissing your life away
Don’t Write
Don’t even listen
you might hear something
