Poetry #148
(published August 21, 2003)
The Unknown
by Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld

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.

Kind thanks to Hart Seely for bringing these found verse to a wider audience.
