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.

Psalms (1) (Louis Toliver Jr-Swartz, LA)

Lord, you are my shepherd, but I still want
Of my freedom, this world of men does taunt
I have recognized life within the greenest eye
Until there is liberation, my words will not die

If a sonnet is what I have to write to catch a brain
Your divine words I hope my soul, you gave, will drain
Grant me the peace to endure the hate of my foes
Let my voice soothe the pains of life’s expected woes

Your grace let’s me not feel just like a lost sheep
The twisted mind of man’s Death is what makes us weep
You do not give death, my Lord, and I thank you
Where there is man’s Death, you make life anew

Thank you for the making me in Your image of intellect
Thank you for giving me the love to understand your effect
