And it's still there! but if they take it down, it will be immortalized here forever! Here, for your reading pleasure...
Time goes by
Wild roses above the beach
Howl, howl, I howl at the moon
The breath of the ocean
The puppies gamboled through the minefield
Watch it fly
Summer, rose hips fall
The blood gushes down
Touch my cheek
The new redneck poets ate barbecue
Time goes by
Fall, snow, snow
Howl down the moon
And it made me cry
Regalia makes the king happy [NOT!]
Night is nigh
I think I need a cigarette
Because I thought of you next to me
That was no lady, that was my car
Oh, how I long for that again.

Actually, The Snarkster isn't entirely responsible for this masterpiece; this gem was a joint effort at a poetry workshop demonstrating how easy it is getting a poem on Poetry[dot]com--and, evidently, keeping it there.
Now for the climax of this post....
The Master Percy Dovetonsils (Ernie Kovacs) Reads Poetry
Kovacs was a pioneer of TV comedy in the 1950's, edging closer, I think, to performance art than what people typically think of as comedy. Even with Percy Dovetonsils the comedy is odd, low key, and character generated, even though there is a poetic punch line toward the end.____________________________________________________________
