D.H.Rumsfeld a Poet?

new-rumsfeldThe Microsoft online news and culture magazine Slate.com has a collection of poems from our beloved Don H. They go as far, as to compare his verse to the ones of William Carlos Williams and Frank O’Hara. Go and see for yourself. Here is a short example:

A Confession

“What in the world am I doing here?”
It’s a big surprise.

—May 16, 2001, interview with the New York Times
