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.

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

Me and Tim a huntin’ went

Met three wh0res in a pop up tent

They were three, and we was two

So I bucked one and timbuktu.

The aboriginal won.
