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.

Haunted (Part 2) (Louis Toliver Jr. - Swartz, LA)

"We've been eight years dead," I pause.
We see a new tombstone with 2015
Walking through the dark graves 
The air smells of death 
It's Halloween again 
Let us not pretend 
Our dance returns
I yearn
Burn for your affection 
Your touch on my neck 
The cemetery so warm 
Our coffee still cold 
Yet onto this death I hold 
I'm still into you 
But I don't want to be
Year after year 
I want to hold your hand 
But you don't want to hold mine 
We're dying
Dying, dying 
We are here 
You shrug at the moon 
Not changing
My interior
Heart broken 
Pain awoken deep
My eyes draw blue 
That I'll leave 
Right after Hallow's Eve
Will this ever end?" you asked
Hell I feel at your question
I yearn 
Burn for your soul
I am still haunted too
Haunted by you
