Default Poetry contest

The National Poetry Contest had come down to two, a Yale graduate
and a redneck from Texas. They were given a word, and 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 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.

The crowd went crazy! No way could the redneck top that, they
thought.
The redneck calmly made his way to the microphone and recited:

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

The redneck won hands down!
