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.

Friends Like Fingernails (Samuel Jones-Bastrop, LA)

I've always found it weird that
Fingernails are perfectly fine on your finger,
But after you clip them
The clippings become "gross."
I feel like ex-friends
Are the same way.
One clipped, they become this foreign part of you
That suddenly becomes "gross"
As if you were never friends.
