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.

Untitled (Chase Fontenot-Lafayette, LA
Today is the day of many haunting curses When medication no longer helps, only worsens The thoughts of past pitfalls of which I deserve Is an apology or a eulogy enough to take away The scrutiny that abuses me? Or burn the battered bridges to stop My demons from pursuing me? Positivity can be a parasite that preys on your brain Draining and shaming your consciousness while the monsters lift The veil to reveal a pistol packed with pills aiming at your soul Without a purpose to persevere, letting poisoned promises take control Instead of having precognitive decisions to mask the fact That a broken heart's a pallbearer at your funeral
