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.

Zombie Rich (Alex KingHoward Berrio-Lafayette, LA)

Take the street on the left
where the lights are low

and the looks even lower
these tall walls
are easy to hide up against
hearing the yuppies caw inside
fame, fortune, and vanity
all bundled with
modern art calamity
inverting from within to
reveal a mushy exterior
a now transparent mask
folded over skin
but the sight of eyes
illusions give way
to the wide open doorways
into empty space
with a narrow-minded
chocolate coated center
you are but dead
dead to me
