The Rasta Poet PDF Print E-mail

The National Poetry Contest had come down to two, a American Yale graduate  and a Jamaican Rastaman who considered himself a graduate of life. They were given one word, and 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 Jamaican Rastaman top that, they thought. The Rastaman calmly made his way to the microphone and recited:

             Me and Tim a huntin' went
             Meet three hot girls in a tent
             Dem was three, and we was two,
             So Mi buck one, and Timbuktu .

                            The Rastaman won!!
