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 Friendzone Pt. II (Samuel Jones- Bastrop, LA)

It's my fault really,
For choosing men
Who've never had a real friend before.

I used to be offended
By how I'm the "friend," yet
They'd turn around and date trash.

Not even good trash either:
The kind that's self-contained and mostly paper,
The kind that's easy to recycle. No,

It's always that wet trash,
With no bag,
That I'd be terrified to stick my hands inside, personally. . .
The kind that attracts pests like
Rats, roaches—raccoons.
I can smell it a mile away.

---

If my best relationships ended
Because Waste Management came,
I'd be emotionally unavailable, too.
