Bucking the system
The Australian Poetry Competition had come down to two finalists; a university graduate and an old aboriginal.
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 university 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."
The crowd went crazy! No way could the old aboriginal top that.
The old aboriginal calmly made his way to the microphone and recited:
"Me and Tim a huntin' went,
Met three whores in a pop up tent,
They were three, and we was two
So I bucked one, and tim buktu."
Whitesnakes do it better .............. When ya back ta doing what ya like!
