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.

Fin (Chase Fontenot-Lafayette, LA)
Last goodbyes The tightrope that I walked And the sidelines which we chalked Simple pleasures from clever treasures Measured our love by a single feather Cutting ties Your pure soul pulls the tears That calm my inner sinner A whisper that farms my fears Our fingers stroke the trigger Empty eyes Awoken by your makeup upon chest A vivid dream invaded my rest Drag me to hell so I can sleep Burn me alive with the secrets we keep
