In the National Collegiate Poetry Society Competition a few years back, the two finalists were the teams from Harvard and West Virginia. Each team was given the same word and had to compose a poem incorporating the word. The judges would select the winner. The word was "Timbuktu."


The Harvard team was to go first. No sooner had they received the word than a young man jumped up and said :


Desert skies, azure blue

We trekked across the sand dunes on camels, two by two



The crowd was impressed and gave a hearty round of applause. Next it was time for the West Virginia Team. The Team Captain slowly rose from his seat, shifted nervously from foot to foot, cleared his throat and began:


Me and Tim a fishing went

We came across some girls, camping in a tent

They was three, we was but two

I buck one, and Timbuktu.

I believe everyone is guilty of that, or some other website, or got it from somebody else
