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.

Closing Time (Louis Toliver Jr-Swartz, LA)

The time comes when an end is near
All we can do is scramble in fear
People start to leave
Tomorrow’s plans we weave

The music fades
The light goes off
We are intoxicated with life
For some that’s great
And for others misery
If only we could look a life soberly
And realize that it is always open
Time is a but a human creation
We are never gaining or losing it
Time just is

The value of a human being
Is determined by how it uses its time
This I am guaranteeing
Living should never be part-time

In every ending
There is always a new beginning
Relationships will always be challenged
But they never have to end
Tomorrow the lights will come back on
And the music will rise
So never get caught up
In what’s ending
And miss out on what’s beginning
Reasoning will connect everything
