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

I am at war with you
My love is forever true
You leave me in disgrace 
And without any place 

What is love good for?
Absolutely nothing solid
So I remain quite stolid 
I can't ask you anymore 

I am at war with you 
I am at war with love
I don't care with who
You puppeteer me above 

This war, this love, this pain
God, grant me life, I'm insane
