The poetry of Donald Rumsfeld and other fresh American art songs

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.

This and six others songs with lyrics by Rumsfeld are available on CD here. No one, as far as we know, has yet set to music the press releases of the Plain English Campaign. [via kaleboel].
