Until now, the poetry of Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has been hidden, embedded within comments made at press briefings and in interviews. His preferred medium is the spoken word, and his audience has been limited to hard-bitten reporters and hard-core watchers of C-SPAN. Just asThe IliadandThe Odysseywere spoken aloud by many bards, in many variations, before Homer captured them on paper, the Rumsfeld improvisations have finally met up with their perfect editor/enabler. Hart Seely, coeditor ofO Holy Cow! The Selected Verse of Phil Rizzuto,uncovers the gems hidden within hundreds of hours of Rumsfeld commentary, in the form of Zen verse, haiku, sonnets, lyric poetry, and free verse. In addition, Seelys sharp sleuthing has uncovered two thematic collections: Rumsfelds Songs of Myself, and Nine Poems on the Media.The result is a hilarious and irreverently revealing book both by and about one of the worlds most powerful men.
