The Australian Poetry Competition


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 given word.
The word they were given was TIMBUKTU
First to recite his poem was the university graduate.
He stepped up 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, they thought.

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 was three, and we was two
So I bucked one, and TIMBUKTU.


About Gintai_昇泰

I'm a Chinese Singaporean living in the Eastern part of Singapore. I tweet on current affairs & inspirational quotes. I blog on issues or events if they interest me. I write for pleasure. I also write mainly for my family and friends. At least they know I'm still alive and well. It's a free country. No one is forcing you to read if you don't like what I write. I'm entitled to my own opinions. Having said that, there are still retards, morons and losers out there hiding behind anonymity hurling all kinds of insults and wicked remarks on my blog. I guess we'll just have to live with these cowardly mangy dogs found in any society. Sigh!

    Almost as good as the one about the child from Glasgow whose teacher asked him to write a sentence with the words ‘kidney bean’ in it. He wrote:

    “I thocht I saw ma uncle Rab in the street, but it kidney bean him coz he’s in Australia.”
