Lekker! Oh, my! A lecher is near us, you say? No, I didn’t use C-H. Lekker uses a K. What did you mean? Was it *“Lick her” you said? And just who should I lick? Are you out of your head? NO! Lekker! It’s NICE. How gross can you get? Licking some person that you've never met! No, it’s just LEKKER. I didn’t say LICK. Well, good! I’m not licking some girl. That’s just sick. Am I hearing you right? Are you trying to say . . . *“like her”? Just who do you like anyway? Not “i” as in “like.” Is your head made of wood? It’s LEKKER, a word which simply means GOOD. Ok, cool your jets! You’ve gone red in the face. Why didn’t you tell me this in the first place?! * In American English, at least, if a person says "Lick 'er" or "Like 'er" it is meant as "lick her" or "like her" since we often omit the H sound of pronouns like him and her after a preceding consonant sound. For the Lekker Contest of Suzette Crous

    Lekker, you say. Well have a nice day. I'm not confused or filled with dismay. The lekker the better, you know that it's true. Do you lek me, I lek you. :)

    Mystery solved! I was wondering what all this Lekker was about! Great poem! I loved the way you tackled it! Made me smile! Andrea, you have read my work. You've commented on some of my haiku's. I simply can't forget it when a poetess of your repute pays a visit! :( I guess I'm not unforgettable...At least I can live vicariously through the song! ;) Lovely write!

    Andrea, jy het baie goed met die meer humoristiese inslag. Ek het gedink dat vir die lekker wedstryd, die humoristiese gedigte sou beter wees .... en jou gedig versterk dit vir my.

    Reads like a winner..Great way to go in the contest..Lekker in my work means a good read..The book is about women being sold or traded years ago or arranged marriages..It is several short stories about such marriages that are based on true historical stories..Good luck in the contest..I know that your fate is too win..Sara
