A Poetry Competition was held in the Baton Rouge had come down to two
A) A LSU graduate.
They were given a word, and then allowed two minutes to study the word and
come up with a short four line poem that contained the word.
The word they were given was ‘TIMBUKTU’.
First to recite his poem was the LSU graduate. He stepped to the microphone
Slowly across the desert sand,
Trekked a lonely caravan
Men on camels, two by two
Destination - Timbuktu
The crowd went crazy !. No way could Boudreaux top that, they thought.
Boudreaux calmly made his way to the microphone and recited;
Me and Tim a huntin’ went
Met three hoes in a pop up tent
They were three, and we were two
So I bucked one, and Timbuktu.
