The Scaffolding

The scaffolding,

when workmen are erecting a building,

they put up as structure,

which holds the building up firmly.

So when some disturbing nightmare

weighs me down into some strange despair,

I think of positive moods and I think of you

and I know I’ve found a scaffolding.

About the Author

Olawale Famodun, a graduate of geology, has been a member of the top management team in one of Nigeria’s biggest Group of Companies for the past three years.

He has grown a steady, yet modest reputation, on his passion for literature and the arts for over two decades. He was a prominent member of his high school Dramatic Society, distinguishing himself in roles which included, but not limited to, Aderopo in ‘The Gods are not to blame’ and The Spiritualist in ‘The Corpse’s Comedy’. At the end of his degree course in geology, he collaborated with a dramatic team in the institution to stage a Yoruba play which he had translated to English. The play, ‘Tragedy of Efunsetan Aniwura – Iyalode of Ibadan’ by Professor Akinwunmi Ishola was written in verse drama using the blank verse style. In 1999, he was highly recommended in the BBC African Performance Radio Drama of that year.
