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.

Watching the Rain (Jason Smith-Lafayette, LA)
I am sitting here watching the rain,
Praying that the drops will wash away my pain.
The fight that was bound to come to bare,
Was something that I wanted with you to spare.
I said I am sorry repeatedly to you,
I feel so terrible that I feel like we are through.
In life, you may never get a second chance,
However, for you I would give you my soul and true romance.
If I had it to do all over again,
I would wait until we are best of friends.
Never again should a relationship be rushed,
I will show you Love, Honesty and Trust.
I wish I knew just what to do,
It feels just like I am being screwed.
You say you love me with all your heart,
I do not know what to say you told me that from the start.
You said you would never try to hurt me or lie,
I know that to be true from the look in your eyes.
You told me never to worry or to feel sad,
That you would set me free before things get bad.
