    The Australian Poetry Competition had come down to two finalists; a university graduate and an old aborigine. 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 aborigine top that, they thought.

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

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


    The aborigine won.
