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.

Flag of Fatherless Time (Alex KingHoward Berrio-Lafayette, LA)

Blue
is how you leave me
desolate and tired
of you coming and going
close to darkness
but hope has shone through
to give you some hue


Yellow
is how you greet me
warm and inviting
taking the hugs
and reflecting them
to all those around
but it all turns stale


Red
is my passion
that I am left with
boiled and bruised
I still smile with those
who hold me dear
as the embrace beckons
my soul to breath


Gold tears
for the priceless times
we've spent together
and for those
we've been apart.


All the time
that has stood blank
in my current memory
when you weren't there
Cut in half
for there is black
and then there is white
