Timbuktu - a ripper!

The Australian Poetry Competition had come down to two finalists; an
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 audience went crazy! No way could the old abo top that,they
thought.

The old aboriginal calmly made his way to the microphone and recited;

Me and Tim a huntin' went
Met three whores in a pop up tent
They was three, and we was two
So I buck one, and timbuktu.

The aboriginal won !!!
