The National Poetry Contest had come down to two semifinalists: a Yale graduate and a redneck from Tennessee. 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 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 ladies in a pop up tent. They was three, and we was two, So I bucked one, and Timbuktu. The redneck won hands down!
