The National Poetry Contest had come down to semi-finals between a Yale graduate and a redneck from Wyoming. They were both 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 Yale graduate. He confidently 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 redneck top this, they thought.

The redneck, with sweat rolled down his face, made his way to the microphone and said:

"A friend and I a hunting went,

We spied three maidens in a tent,

They being three, we being two,

I bucked one and Tim bucked two."

The redneck went to the finals.Share
