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 Phoenix Dies (Louis Toliver Jr-Austin, TX)

Depression weighted 
Time to be reinvented 
Free me 
I'm falling 
Ignited fire 
The Phoenix is dying 
No one is watching 
Judgement only 
It cries 
I cry 
A loud shriek  
Ashes rolling into...
What is that? 
Who is that?
In its end 
In the beginning 
God took dirt 
He rolled the ashes
He molded the Phoenix 
He blew air 
Soul inflated
I have Him
We hibernate 
In an oven
Temperature just right 
I'll come out 
Cooked to perfection
