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.

Track Marks (Chase Fontenot-Lafayette, LA)

There were times 
We didn't need a reason to cry
Nor had motives to care
Holding hands bridged our souls
And an embrace tunneled hearts
Cheek kisses as an evening's cliffhanger
Street lamps weren't a mere passerby
When the moon shone upon our whispers of love,
Sex, death, pastries, sarcasm
There were those times once
But not now
