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.

15 Years Innocent (Chase Fontenot-Layette, LA)
Let it be me, to lay a blanket beside the beach God knows your tongue, woman, he knows your reach Withering your words when our senses brush Your gasps run for cover when we touch Don’t let your presence remain fickle On such a landscape, lady Don’t burn your memories Of this sweet escape, baby A brilliant sparkling carpet before us A deep azure blue Our shadows flowing so quickly Our chains haven’t a clue A transient moment suspended in time Body language, the rhythm and rhyme Oxygen, condensation, heartbeats, divine We can build a house of cards from the sand Electric stares when we join hands Luminescent eyes, delicate skin Only the sea whispers our sins
