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.

The Last Dark Sonnet (#5) (Louis Toliver Jr. - Swartz, LA)

This is the last dark sonnet I shall write 
Your lips aren't worthy of my pen's kisses
I am sick of whining about our misses
I reject your darkness for true light 

Am I but Shakespeare's lover jaded? 
He left words for me to give to you 
But quite frankly, I'd rather you eat glue 
Keeping your mouth of lies shut, you faded

I turn my pen to a life more fruitful yielded
This is the last dark sonnet I shall write
Trust me, you don't want my words to fight 
My heart will laugh at you as it's shielded

I bid you adieu, old love, lost to the winded
My mind stands strong and forever mended
