Guest Post: Ojumu Joan

Hey guys. Happy new month. I’m sorry I’ve left you guys with virtually crumbs and bits of updates.
I hope it changes but I can’t promise that it will this month as I have exams this month. Wish me well.

So, Joan, a friend of mine who doesn’t write much wrote something I loved and so, because I love her writeup and feel it’s really good, I’m sharing it here.
I hope you enjoy it.

Folakemi
Such a specie of the female gender, a perfect weak vessel
Fair to look upon, with a fair brain

Fair-brained people cannot survive in this world
Said her father, so, you must do as i say Folakemi.

You must study law in the university, since you have no brain to choose a befitting course. I mean who reads banking these days.

Fair brained Folakemi studied hard, eager to please her father.
But alas, destiny had other plans, she was admitted for Religious Studies.

Tsk, Tsk, Tsk, said her father. I should have known it was too much work for your fair brain to get in for Law.

Now we must prepare you for your husband.
Look at Chief Solanke’sĀ  son – Kola; he graduated top ten from Harvard law. You must get him to love you.

But, but, but, i love Chima, said fair brained Folakemi.

Ofcourse you would since you are soo fairbrained. Now prepare to marry Kola.

Blue and black
Bruised and beaten
Physically and psychologically overwhelmed,
Just six months into her marriage,
Folakemi cried to her father
Baaaami, see how Kola treates,me like a common dog.

Tsk, Tsk, Tsk, i should have known that the simple task of making Kola fall in love with you, was more than your fair brain could bear.
Well that is what you get for not making your husband love you. Perbaps,you are a common dog.

Tsk, tsk, tsk…fair brained Folakemi. I suppose it was more than your fair brain could bear that slithering your wrist is a very messy way of commiting suicide,
Just swallowing too many pills would have sufficed.
Well, i supposed the harsh world has just gotten rid of another fair brained female. “>Folakemi
