So I had a poem on deviantart which I wrote in 2002 (and it still shows up in search results.) It was apparently copied in August 2011 by another site. I did not know about this and I published it here and deleted it off deviantart. I cannot 'undelete' it from deviantart.
The person's site is hosted via freewebs.com
Any idea on how I should proceed given that the dupe was made before I published it here?
It might be be possible to use the Wayback Machine (web.archive.org/) to call up the 2002 copy of your poem on Deviant Art? You could the use that as evidence of prior publication in a DMCA notice against the copying site.
