Open letter to South Africa’s students‚ universities and government‚ represented by Minister in the .
I INTENDED dabbling in matters of the heart, crushes, puppy love et al, but I got scared I might have to punch above my weight.
So instead I will indulge the voyeur in many of us and share some teary letters exchange between two youngsters besotted with one another.
My young niece was so touched I felt you would also be.
Time and ability plus double capacity has forced my pen to dance automatically on this benedicted sheet of paper.
The reason why this miraculous thing happened is that, papie, I love you spontaneously and since I stand horizontal to the wall and perpendicular to the ground I only think of you.
Papie, please stop haranguing me with the feelings in my heart because I love you more than a snake loves a rat.
Each time I see you my metabolism suddenly stops and my peristalsis goes in reverse gear. My medular oblongata also stops functioning.
Crazy, crazy, crazy, you might say, but this is true. If only you knew what was going on in my encephalon you would understand.
I think I have to pen-off here because I still haven't finished studying electrolysis and polymerization. Sleep tight and don't let the bed bugs bite coz you are too sweet a thing for them.
Sugar "tapi tapi"
My Love, My Sugar, I was exasperated with pride to have received one from you. The lungs in my body flapped with joy when I read your letter.
Anyway, by now you have reached the realisation as to why I am jotting this small letter to you. Yes it is to see if you are keeping with the sands of time.
How is everything on that other side of yours? We hear everything is just half lemon, half sugar to make it Schweppes. How are you pulling the wagons of life? I am just pulling the schooling thing like a donkey pulling a cart.
My, honie, I am missing you very much right now. My heart is perambulating with every word I write. Were it not for these oceans that decided to flow between us I would get on the next bus to come and see you. But until then I know I will not hesitate to put this blue blood on this paper and write to you.
I remember the day lovie, that one sweet day when Maria Curry sang it. You know that it is my favourite song, honie, the one day that we were boarding the Kombis.
Please always write to me because I am missing you like sugar misses tea. You can see my foto above.
My dedications to you are:
Maria Curry - One Sweet Day.
Boys to Main - And of the rod.
Keep well my mop of my heart. Yours in flesh and blood.
Ruise Sugar Baby
PS Sorry about my English, I did not learn anymore!!!"
Gives me a profound sense of déjà vu.
