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 #3 (Louis Toliver Jr. - Swartz, LA)

These chains and whips hurt
Where has my sanity gone?
I'm sitting here eating your dirt
Hoping that it will soon be dawn 

This sonnet is third in my misery 
You don't even care about us 
Oh, how love has become dreary
Humiliation seeping out like puss

You bit off my hand as I fed you 
 I hunger and thirst for any love 
Because you ate my cake too
Our love has become sour love

The bondage of my soul to yours 
Has me down praying on all fours
