Poetry Competition
The National Poetry Contest had come down to two, a Sheffield graduate and a lone businessman from Sussex. 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 Sheffield graduate. He stepped up 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 Sussex guy top that, they thought. The businessman 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.


Not too rude i hope
