    Red face Australian Poetry Competition

    <p align="center"><FONT face="Comic Sans MS" size=4 color="#FF00FF"><B>Australian Poetry Competition</B> </FONT>
    <P><FONT face="verdana, arial, helvetica" size=2>The <font color="#FF00FF"><i>
    <u>Australian Poetry
    Competition</u></i></font> had come down to two finalists: <BR><BR>A university graduate and an
    old bushie. <BR><BR>They were given a word, then allowed two minutes to study
    the word and come up with a poem that contained the word. <BR><BR>The word they
    were given was <b><font color="#33CC33">"TIMBUKTU". </font></b> <BR><BR>First to recite his poem was the university
    graduate. <BR><BR>He stepped to the microphone and said: Slowly across the
    desert sand, trekked a lonely caravan. Men on camels, two by two. destination -
    <b><font color="#33CC33">Timbuktu. </font></b> <BR><BR>The crowd went crazy! No way could the old bushie top that,
    they <BR>thought. <BR><BR>The old bushie calmly made his way to the microphone
    and recited: Me and Tim a huntin' went. Met three whores in a pop-up tent. They
    was three, and we was two. So I bucked one, and Timbuktu. <BR><BR>
    <font color="#0000FF"><b>The old bushie
    won . <BR></b></font><BR></FONT></P>

    In the beauty of a petal,
    Fallen softly on the land,
    Lies the marvel and the majesty
    Of God's creative hand.
