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 Don’t Need (Nor Want) You (Louis Toliver Jr-Swartz, LA)


Enough
Is
Enough
No more time outs
This is the end
We can’t pretend
I
Can’t pretend anymore
Any way
I can move on
We must
Let’s not rust
No fest starts
Just molded ends
You
Me
Us
On a bus
Our destinations diffeent
Your stop first
Maybe mine
No more hurt
This isn’t anger
We’re just on a hanger
So let go
Me first
Then you
Why
I don’t know
Something’ got to go
I can’t give up on
On me
Not this time
Jack
So get Jill
And get up that hill
