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.

The Dance (Brandon Granger-Breaux Bridge, LA)

Who am I in this love affair?
A fleeing moment of a stable figure
that is yet to be known,
But you dance with my emotions as
a tango or a ballroom blitz.
Never knowing the next step or beat
When something more desirable will
Come along to cheer your fancy and
Sweep you off your feet.
Is my love truly enough?
For that, my dear friend, is left to be
Seen. To strip you or your secrets
and to place your trust in me would
be my deepest desire.
To know you head to toe…that we
May dance together always as lovers
With one beat and one melody.
