The further poetry of Donald Rumsfeld

Noted US poet Donald Rumsfeld recited some of his oeuvre before the US Senate yesterday.

And you say you don't like surprises.

My Lord, who likes surprises?

Nobody in the world likes surprises.�

But the world's not perfect.

Facts change on the ground.

And when facts change on the ground, commanders tell us.

And when commanders tell us, they get the troops they need.

Just extraordinary lyric insights...
