Funny Poem Friday Funnies #276

Funny PoemI never really liked poetry until one day I decided to write a poem on this very blog. It wasn’t a funny poem as such, more about the difference between young and old and centered around blogging. I called my first poem Blogs, Blogging, Young Man Old Man, Never The Twain Shall Meet. Yeah, I know, the title is a little long, but like I said it was my first poem.

Poetry comes in handy at times when you want to vent your frustration, like the time I wrote the Google Sucks poem. Who know’s, perhaps some of you will find that funny. :wink_ee:

Then there was the one called, Man’s Struggle To Control His Urges, which I meant to be a funny poem. Then there was My Passionate Encounter which I really meant to be a funny poem. You can see all my poems here.

Enough about my poetry, this post isn’t all about me, it’s about a short and truly funny poem, one called Timbuktu! This funny poem actually comes with a story on how it all came about.

Timbuktu – A Funny Poem

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 word.
The word was ‘ TIMBUKTU ‘

First to read his poem was the university 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 old man top that, they thought.

The 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 were three, and we were two,
So I bucked one, and Tim buktu.

The aboriginal won hands down.

Don’t forget, I have heaps of really funny sports jokes.
