Joke : Timbuktu

The National Poetry Contest had come down to two finalists, an Oxford graduate and a high school dropout.  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 Oxford graduate.  He stepped to the  microphone and said:
Slowly across the desert
Trekked a lonely caravan;
Men on camels, two by two
Destination Timbuktu.

The crowd went crazy! No way could the high school dropout top that, they thought.

He calmly made his way to the microphone and recited:

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

And we have a winner!
