Rumsfeld Poetry

As we know,
There are known knowns.
There are things we know we know.
We also know
There are known unknowns.
That is to say
We know there are some things
We do not know.
But there are also unknown unknowns.
The ones we don’t know we don’t know.

Yes, this is an actual quote from Donald Rumsfeld with line breaks added by Hart Seely, editor of Pieces of Intelligence: The Existential Poetry of Donald H. Rumsfeld. Whoever knew that he wasn’t actually a political monster, but a sensitive poet?
