The National Poetry Contest had come down to two semi-finalists:
a) a Yale graduate
b) a Redneck
“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 WHORES IN A POP-UP TENT.
DEY WAS THREE, AND WE WAS TWO
SO I BUCKED ONE, AND TIMBUKTU
The Redneck won hands down
