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.

Dark Sonnet #2 (Louis Toliver Jr. - Swartz, LA)

I am extremely powerless for you 
This submissive game isn't new 
When I pick you up out of the dark 
You bring me down like a shark 

I am miserable with the desire 
To set our desperate lives on fire 
Burning for your love over and over 
Damn, I wish I had a four-leaf clover 

This sonnet is second just like me
You are first but that you can't see
I want to be done with you forever 
Your manipulation of my heart is clever 

You mock what my heart has to say 
This is just my feelings on display
