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.

Disease (Louis Toliver Jr. - Swartz, LA)

What is this eating at me?
This despair of death
It has taken my courage
I, at times, fear the unknown
This disease grows strong
Hopefully, I grow stronger
Longer, longer I stay
I wait for the alarm
That final ring to my maker
My flesh ready for serving
Can I be no smarter than death?
When the timer goes off
I give in too easily to grief
I am but the perfect target
I can think around this journey
I must be the better magician
An instigator of all life
The beauty in the breakdown
This disease will not win
Release my soul into the wind
