I received in a email. I was aghast at the audacity of anyone sending this through the mail to me! I do not send such trash nor do I forward....I publish it for all to enjoy!!!!!!!!
Remember, I am not the author, only the spreader.
The National Poetry Contest had come down to two, a Yale graduate and a redneck from Texas.
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 Yale graduate. He stepped to the microphone and said:
Slowly across the desert sand
Trekked a lonely caravan;
Men on camels, two by two
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 whores in a pop up tent.
They was three, and we was two,
So I bucked one, and Timbuktu.
Hope it made you smile!
