The Australian Poetry Competition had come down to two finalists;
A university graduate and an old Aboriginal.
They were given a word, and then allowed two minutes to study the word and come up with a poem that contained a certain 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,The crowd went crazy! No way could the old Aboriginal top that, they thought.
Trekked a lonely caravan
Men on camels two by two
Destination - Timbuktu.
The old Aboriginal calmly made his way to the microphone and recited;Me and Tim a huntin' wentThe Aboriginal won.
Met three whores in a pop up tent
They were three, and we was two
So I bucked the one, and Timbuktu.
