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.

Between The Bars (James Leland Ludeau III-Lafayette,LA)

Drink up baby, look at the stars
I'll kiss you again between the bars
Where I'm seeing you there with your hands in the air
Waiting to finally be caught
you taught
me about people i used to be
that i don't want around anymore
a past life
like crime
stealing the joy
from a lonely boy
and trying to figure it out
what it's all about
and why life can sometimes feel like one long night
the fight
to stay in the game
face covered in shame
drink up baby, let it go down
spin you around
in your drunken haze
feed the craze
and kiss on my lips til you're all done
and wait for the sun
to rise in the sky
up to the clouds and rest your head there
forget all your care
i can be the poison you crave
your silent grave
and you can close your eyes and rest for all time
leave behind
this life of crime
