Poet Laureate - Like Gene Healy, I am impressed by The Poetry of D.H. Rumsfeld:
You're going to be told lots of things.
You get told things every day that don't happen.

It doesn't seem to bother people, they don't --
It's printed in the press.
The world thinks all these things happen.
They never happened.

Everyone's so eager to get the story
Before in fact the story's there
That the world is constantly being fed
Things that haven't happened.

All I can tell you is,
It hasn't happened.
It's going to happen.
All of them are good. At least, to a philistine like me without the slightest appreciation of real poetry.
