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.

Poetic Hunger (Louis Toliver Jr- Austin, TX)
Here my poetic soul starves
Emotional meat, she carves
Served on my favorite dish
A sonnet made from every wish
My poetic ancestors I eat
I cut my knife into each beat
Rhythm, I taste, so divine
Elizabethan Era be mine
Will I ever be full in the present?
When I yearn for them in the past?
Will my pen lose consistency fast?
When, no one is full in the present.
Here, feminine beauty I pen
In hopes to feed wretched men
