The SMH’s Mike Carlton cracks wise:
Donald Rumsfeld no longer presides over the havoc he did so much to create in Iraq, but his exquisite attempt at haiku poetry lives on:
As we know, That’s a hard act to follow.
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.
This Rumsfeld-poet gag is more than three years old. Do read on for a guest appearance in Carlton’s column from accurate and concise Hal G.P. Colebatch.
