This bus load of people crashes off of a cliff it is very late in the day. St peter is about to call it quits for the day and they don't have very many spaces left that day in heaven. When he finally gets to the last two on the bus there is only one spot left.
He explains that this has happened before and that what they do is draw a word out of a hat and whoever makes the best poem gets to go to heaven and the other one got to well you know
the two had been on the bus together for quite some time and the other knew that his seatmate was the famous poet Robert Frost and complained that this arrangement was not fair. St peter assured him that all would be fair and that he could draw the word from the hat.
he drew the word Timbuktu
in protest they went into cubicles to compose their poems
Robert Frost went first ---smiling
We planned a very lengthy trip
aboard a wooden sailing ship
we sailed across the ocean blue
our destination Timbuktu
Wow says the other guy I didn’t even really know what Timbuktu meant but anyway
A camping Tim and I both went
We saw three girls in a tent
As they were three and we were two
I bucked one
And Tim bucked two
