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.

A Flock of Birds (James Leland Ludeau III-Lafayette, LA)

a flock of birds
hovering above
and how could you cage something that knows how to fly?
a flock of birds
that's how i see this love
the alchemy that exists between us
it arrives
next thing you know it's gone
fly on
and i wish you well
whether we work out or not
in the dark you're like the wind
i feel you
but i can not see you
just a presence on my skin
a magic
a layer in the world i just can't describe
spread your wings
and fly over me
and it may break my heart
or it may set me apart
but this love i feel will set me free in some way
whatever comes to me i welcome it
i embrace your embrace
and if it lasts it does
and if it doesn't it doesn't
but in my head i'll never forget how it felt
i'm open
my heart is a flock of birds
and for now i've landed on you
