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.

Devil's Den (Annette Redmond Walters - Lafayette, LA)

Demons in my head
Sucking at my brain
Twisted dreams of dead
Flushing me with pain
Can't hear what you said
Deafened by the rain

Desperate to free my soul
I thrash against your skin
Sucked into this hole
I've walked into the devil's den
I lay upon his coals
Suffering for my sin

Please release my passion
Before it's smothered out
Love's become a fashion
That's filled my mind with doubt
I won't live off his rations
Somehow I'll find the route
