    I think my two favorites (of serious, thought-provoking, emotion-stirring poetry) of all time are,
    1) Robert Frost's "Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening," and
    2) John Masefield's "Sea Fever."

    For funny, lighthearted fare, however, I defer to Ogden Nash.

    An adopted culture
    inculcated into individuals
    with packages full of half truths
    blended with interests so personal
    as the convictions of its prey
    are bought too cheaply.

    A never fully understood process
    a system either ambiguous
    or full of darkness
    yet commands dedication and loyalty

    Far from being a lifestyle
    a pretender; so hypocritical to spirituality
    and a sworn enemy to freedom
    appears as the light
    but comes in a flash and leaves total darkness
    its actual and true nature.

    So well obeyed
    and diligently served
    powerful and mighty
    as it is a master
    in manipulating the mind.

    It's cage is heavy
    with thick Iron rods
    very small and compressive
    but having no lock,
    want to come out? Simply open the door
    and emancipate yourself.

    You need not follow the doctrine of man
    to be spiritual
    a mortal guide is ideal
    but finding your own understanding
    is the most appropriate
    or else, you'd be burnt
    by the deadly flames of religion

    The site of every creature in skirt
    gives him fever
    and overworks his liver
    with the thousands of feminine  perfumes inhaled.

    His magical touch
    and mercurial mind,
    intertwine their soft spots
    like a weaver.

    Every night,
    he is blessed with a diva
    and his sweet mouth
    filled with honey
    makes her his part-time lover.

    To avoid biological consequences
    he casts a spell on her ova
    getting exact results
    and retaining his trophies.

    Even when his calculations fail,
    he overlooks with a careless smile.

    What then can stop his trade,
    when he transacts in a market
    of a never ending supply?

    Impresses with his rover
    lavishing promises of holidays in Geneva
    and impacts the belief
    that he'll give them all, forever.
    But he'll start sniffing the next underwear
    even before its over;
    is the favorite game of chess
    played by the Casanova.

    These are my poems!
