Writer’s Quote Wednesday


#Writer’sQuoteWednesday

Today, I attempted to add a media to my quote and I hope I got it :). Arrow Season 1, episode 13 has a quote I found very interesting and it reads: Arrow Season 1 episode 13 – VIEW 22:45 to 23:50

Writer's Quote Wednesday_230115

I found this quote particularly interesting because Oliver Queen being stranded on an Island meets another stranger, Slade Wilson, and he begins training him almost on the spot. It’s beyond the sword fight, it’s the taunt that ‘provokes’ Oliver eventually to learn how to fight. More than that, I thought this saying, KEEP YOUR BLADE UP ALWAYS STAY BEHIND YOUR SWORD reminds us to always stick to and stay with what offers us protection. As a writer, my sword is my pen and I’m sticking to it. Then again, if you are ever going to have my back dear friend, I need to know you can cover it. *wink* Cheers!

Freedom Fridays Rant

Freedom Friday


FK for President

It’s Freedom FridayProudly Nigeria

Thank you! Thank you my fiple (people) for all the acknowledgements, kwad bless.

I have watched, read and listened with interest and disinterest (because some of your speeches are really boring, and apart from the many figures/long list of ‘facts’, they are full of lies). So today I’m offering you a new candidate. Away with the OLD and in with the NEW!

FK for PRESIDENT! My ‘poor’ (not literal) FK, she must be red in the face with shock that I’m selling her manifesto to the public. Why won’t I, when we have had it up to our necks with different ideologies and stories and want out! E don do, make una no deceive us again! Wetin!? Is it because we have refused to say anything? Actually, this is the problem with us, but you can’t blame us for being quiet because when we attempted it, we were teargased, thrown in jail and arrested for being bold. Who wants to spend February 14th in Jail? I’d rather be on the queue voting fo rmy beloved FK, than watching some sombre-looking wall with my hands clutching to brownish bars that are not letting me out any time soon.

Wait a moment? Are we not trading our freedom for some invisible bars that will prevent freedom of this and that (please fill the space yourself)? My Pastor shared something on Sunday and the wisdom in it was out of this world and I will share with you. King Solomon was faced with declaring judgement over two women and a baby. Because he was blessed with divine wisdom he was able to choose right and hand the baby over to the woman who would rather give the baby to the other, than watch them divide the child. That’s the heart of a real mother. I said that to say this, anything or anyone that seeks to divide us is not the real mother of the child. A word is enough for the wise and while you are still trying to understand the wisdom of King Solomon, please remember to come out on February 14th and vote for my FK.

In-between: Who fixed the election for that day sef? Not like I do my love on a special day o! I am love personified, oozing from every pore of mine, so I’m not bothered about this fixture.

What is it with all these trading insults and ‘secrets’ across the net about each candidate? Is that what they have to offer us? Just asking o! Oga-in-charge of PR, won’t you change your modus operandi?

Oops, I forgot to state what FK has to offer us:

  • Justice
  • A voice to the helpless
  • Enlightenment which will aid us in informed decisions
  • Diversification of power
  • Change for the better
  • Functional reward system for TRUE heroes (emphasis on TRUE…not politically chosen heroes)
  • No more Aso-ebi (she will sue me for adding this). But FK, seriously, if you ban Aso-ebi, women will not vote for you…don’t worry, you have my vote already.
  • Opportunities for sensible people to be in charge
  • Broad-based Grassroot Democracy
  • Full implementation of MDGs

By the way, we haven’t decided what our party will be called, seeing that all the other politicians have taken all the 26 ALPHABETS…who does that?! Okay, we will use names of all the Kings in the Land (her suggestion), and I think that will be a unique selling point that we have powers that be behind us and our Free-for-All Party; besides by the time you see your village chief’s name as a Political Party, you will vote, knowing your interest is being taken into consideration.

On a more serious note, regardless of how well coated each leader’s story is, put it through the litmus test and watch the result. But then, if you have ROI in their success, you will vote against good conscience. Anyhow, Oluwa is involved and He will settle this matter! Enjoy your Friday!

PS: We share the same initial by the way. What’s your take on this Folakemi?
