Awkward's Humour and Sillies

Rednecks & Poetry

The finals of the National Poetry Contest last year came down to two
finalists. One was a Duke University Law School graduate. The other finalist
was a redneck from Southeast Alabama A&M.

The rules of the contest required each finalist to compose a four-line poem in
one minute or less, and the poem had to contain the word "Timbuktu".

The Duke graduate went first. About thirty seconds after the clock started
hejumped up and recited the following poem:

Slowly across the desert sand, 
Trekked the dusty caravan. 		 
Men on camels, two by two 		 

The audience went wild!!! How, they wondered, could the redneck top that?!

The clock started again and the redneck sat in silent thought. Finally, in the
last few seconds, he jumped and recited:

Tim and me, a-huntin' went. 			 
Met three whores in a pop-up tent. 
They was three, we was two, 			 
So I bucked one and Timbuktu.
