Lekker Thoughts

Lekker Thoughts

To live a lekker life
One must set aside
Discord and strife

To have a lekker day
One should be ready
To learn how to play

A lekker attitude
Will bid you well
Dished with gratitude

A woodpecker Is not lekker
When boring holes at dawn


Have a LEKKER day !!

    now I know what a kekker is,,, or am I totally bonkers ;},,,, I still like it though, I'll say good - by is a note/ poem I wrote back when I was 18 - 19 as I was trying to figure out how to tell him I don't want to any out anymore. I knew him about a year ;} though in poem I made it sound like a 10yr love affair ;}

    This would be a good thought to ponder daily, minus of course the Woodpecker. Have been awakened far too many a time by the winged rascal. Thank you for sharing...still smiling as I read it over a few more times for depth. Thanks
