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.

Mosquitos (Samuel Jones - Bastrop, La)

Rushing water
And endless floods
Used to mean ...
 You and me:

Flowing emotions,
Fast moving passion,
And the knowledge
That we run so deep.

I could see it
In your eyes. Though,
You were smiling.
Why were you so afraid?

I would ask you,
And you would reply
Stick by stick
By stick.

I noticed the dam,
But still you smiled
Stick by stick
By stick

The water has stopped
And I feel it no more.
I've been standing here for
Far too long.

And then there's a slap—
A mosquito trap.

But now I notice the swarm
