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.

Drip Drop (Alex KingHoward Berrio-Lafayette, LA)

Delicate sheets fascinate dreary eyes
Divergent prismed light beaming through drops
drops dripping and descending daily
drooping leaves with molecule weight
dampening children's days
depending on water fall to quench
dismal shriveled up root highway
debilitating is this deadly and dry heat
desert so desolate, desperate for moisture
distant splashes of the divine dive
do remind to return from whence you came
dip into the dramatic downpour dream
