The National Poetry Contest had come down to two, a Yale graduate and aredneck from Texas. They were given a word, then allowed two minutes tostudy 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 Yale 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. Thecrowd went crazy! No way could the redneck top that, they thought. Theredneck 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. The redneck won hands down!
