We will be sharing our favorite poem, Donald Rumsfeld's "The Glass Box." (Read it yourself, after the jump.)

Glass Box

You know, it's the old glass box at the--

At the gas station,

Where you're using those little things

Trying to pick up the prize,

And you can't find it.


And it's all these arms are going down in there,

And so you keep dropping it

And picking it up again and moving it,


Some of you are probably too young to remember those--

Those glass boxes,


But they used to have them

At all the gas stations

When I was a kid.

(c) Donald Rumsfeld, 1903
