The Poetry Contest

The Poetry Contest had come down to two semi-finalists:

A Yale graduate and a Newfoundlander.

They were given a single word, then allowed two minutes to come up with a poem that contained the word. The word they were given was "TIMBUKTU ".

The Yale graduate steps 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 Newfie top that, they thought.

The Newfoundlander calmly made his way to the microphone and recited:

"ME AND TIM A HUNTIN' WENT,
MET T'REE WHORES IN A POP-UP TENT.
DEY WAS T'REE, AND WE WAS TWO,
SO I BUCKED ONE, AND TIMBUKTU!"

The Newfie won hands down.
