How William Carlos Williams’s famous poem about plums in the icebox became a meme.
My favourite:
Hwæt! þēos plumas þe in icebox wære swylce þu ge-saving hǽdfe for þæm breoc-fastum eaten hæbbe ic.
Me forgif mine gyltas for synnum minum Swæt wǽre swa swa ceoll frofer mannum.
Þæs ofereode, þisses swa mæg.

Genius, absolute genius. A nine minute hilarious beat poem that demolishes irrationality in all its forms.

Star Wars: A New Hope. In sonnets.
For the curious, it's Petrarchan, Spenserian twice, then four nice easy Shakespearean.
