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.

How Do I Explain? (Jason M. Smith-Lafayette, LA)

Why do I cause you so much pain,
I wish I could find the words to explain.
I know that you and I belong together,
You have always sheltered me from the weather.
I think I do the things I do to keep me safe,
Even though you say you’re here to give me faith.
Could it be that I am afraid to loose you too,
Is that the reason I try to hurt you?
To have you leave me for another mate,
Will it be my fault when you have left me to this fate?
You have made me happy beyond belief,
You have been the ground beneath my feet.
I love you more then I often show,
Please don’t let this cause you to go.
