Rummy gone...but oh what a poets muse...

Who would have thought that some of D Rumsfields comments and ramblings were actual metaphysical puzzles....(there are even more the the infamous unknowns gem) Even more interesting when put to music, as many have done. WFMU is one the best spots for free form radio on the web. I found this song (mp3) by the Gate 5, its slow breezy Rummy ramblings..
This song is originally from the band's "Rummy" EP, on the Dramaphone label. From the CD insert: [The Rummy EP was] without a doubt inspired by Hart Seely's column at in the Spring of 2003 "The Existential Poetry of Donald H. Rumsfeld". Lyrics are based on official transcripts of press briefings given by Secretary of Defense Donald H. Rumsfeld, as posted by the Department of Defense of the United States of America on its official website."
