Just Laughs: Aussie Poetry Competition and the winner is ...

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 aborigin top that they thought.

The old aborigin calmly made his way to the microphone and recited;

Me and Tim a hunting went,
Met three whores in a pop up tent,
They were three and we were two,

The aborigin won!
