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.

You Say He’s Just a “Friend” (Louis Toliver Jr-Swartz, LA)

Wait a second
Let’s teach you a lesson
Who is this guy?
Please don’t lie
Why don’t I know his name?
Please don’t leave me with shame
You say he’s just a friend
But why do I feel this is the end?
I see how this goes
Will I be stuck with all the woes?
I’m asking too many questions
You’re not giving enough answers
I can’t even rhyme anymore
I don’t have the energy
You go free with your “friend”
And I don’t even deserve an explanation
A descent into your mind games
I’ll just become the next crazy ex-boyfriend
But I promise you this
The next time you see me
I’ll be smiling right past you
With my own “just a friend”
