A priest and a shepherd take part in a Australian tv quiz show

After answering all the questions, there is a tie.

So both are given one final assignment.

It is to write a poem in three minutes, using the word "Timbuktu".

It is a city in Africa.

The priest returns with the fruit of his inspiration:

I had no children, had no wife,

I read the bible through and through

on my way to Timbuktu ... "

"When Tim and I to Brisbane went

We met three women cheap to rent.

They were three and we were two,

So I booked one and Tim Booked Two ... "
