Australian Poetry

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 whores in a pop up  tent
They were three, and we  was two
So I bucked one, and   timbuktu .

The aboriginal won.
