The National Poetry Contest had come down to two semi-finalists, a Yale graduate, and an Irish hunter.

They were given a single word, and then allowed two minutes to comeup 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 Irishman top that, they thought.

The Irish hunter calmly made his way to the microphone and recited his poem.

'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 Irishman won hands down.
