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.

I’m Letting Her Go (Louis Toliver Jr-Swartz, LA)

Even though it is hard
At the end of the day
It is time to play this card
I am certain it is okay

She was never good for me
She led me into dark places
I know that I could barely see
Searching for human graces

I ran to her for her love
She made me think of comfort
Never touched me with a glove
Now I rip her off like a wart

It feels good to know her way
It feels good I know more
She can no longer make me stay
I am no longer her whore

…I’m letting her go. Finallly.
