Can you do a haiku?

Or, even better, you should do a rendition of The Real Slimshady by Eminem. I'd give you $5 if you did that.

I second "Do Not Go Gently Into That Good Night" by Dylan Thomas.

Also, for something that's just fun to say, look into some of Langston Hughes' poetry. It has cool jazz/blues rhythms to the words, and they're bitchin' cool.
Can't stop the signal.

Or, "Big Balls" by AC/DC. There's a great amount of emotional depth and conflict in that work.

If he wants to put the class to sleep. I made a joke with a friend of mine that I should record that poem as Eyeore from Winnie the Pooh.

Look up some stuff by Frost or if you want something ridiculous read Discovery of the New World by Carter Revard. I did a full presentation on that one.
