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.

Blame It on the Rain (Louis Toliver Jr-Swartz, LA)

The weather
Falls on us like a feather
The sun is hiding
Watching what we’re confiding

She, some say, thinks we are sinners
Though we dream of being winners
Rain is the cause of dreary
Washing us clean of weary

Sun come out
Do not pout
We are only learning
For the life we keep yearning

Sun, it’s your tears
That raise up all our fears
If only we could be the joy to your pain
With our souls, we ‘d soak up all the rain
