There are subtle and, to some, unsavoury sexual undercurrents to this poem. I can assure you that I wrote it because a Timbuktu poem is once of the milestones along the route to being accepted as a proper funny poet.
Funny poems of life and death
Funny poems about family life
If I were going to Timbuktu
I think that I would take just you
As Timbukone sounds much less fun
And Timbukthree most unwholesome
