National Poetry Contest finalists, are down to two contestants. One is a University Law School student from a very well to do family, the other is a Redneck from South East Alabama junior school. The rules are: The contestants have 60 seconds to compose a four line poem which must contain the word Timbuktu. The clock starts, the men are thinking, after about 30 seconds the Law student jumps up and says:

“Slowly across the desert sand
Treks the dusty caravan
Men on camels, two by two
Destination Timbuktu.”

The crowd went wild. How on earth could the Redneck top that. The Redneck stands up and slowly walks to the microphone, then says:

“Tim and me a huntin’ went
Met three whores in a pop up tent
They was three and we was two
I bucked one and Timbuktu.”
