  • Another oldie

    The Australian Poetry Competition had come down to two finalists: a
    university graduate and an old aboriginal. They were given a word,
    then allowed two minutes to study the word and come up with a poem
    that contained the word.


    The word they were given was TIMBUKTU.

    First to recite his poem was the university graduate. He stepped to
    the microphone and said:


    Slowly across the desert sand
    Trekked a lonely caravan
    Men on camels two by two
    Destination - Timbuktu.


    The crowd went crazy! No way could the old aboriginal top that they
    thought.


    But the old aboriginal calmly made his way to the microphone and
    recited:


    Me and Tim a hunting' went
    Met three whores in a pop-up tent
    They was three, and we was two
    So I bucked one, and Timbuktu.

    The old aboriginal won.
