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