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 - ' TIMBUKTU '

First to read 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 man top that, they thought.

The 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 were two,
So I bucked one, and tim buktu

The Aboriginal won hands down!!
