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.

Rolling Over (Chase Fontenot-Lafayette, LA)
Never mind the blood on my hands Nor my flask of whiskey These shadowy eyes tired Sleep must’ve missed me
Frown not at the sweat upon my face Nor the wine in my veins My false-bright eyes, white from the taste
Take notice, this rage in my bones Take note, my lonely tones Take away, the silence in my home
The violet hour when thirst takes over Too unquenchable to stay sober An addict to the thorns buried skin deep Insomnia controls your attempt to sleep The eyes’ open melodies Reflect the death in me
