Pluto Poem

pluto and moons

Is Pluto a planet?
Apparently not!
NASA called it a planet,
But now it cannot!
A planet one time,
The 9th from the sun,
But now it's demoted,
Its title undone,
Hard rock and cold ice,
Found deep in dark space,
With Eris and Ceres,
It shares a strange place,
It’s called a dwarf planet,
Orbits the skies,
But not a real planet,
Based on its size!

Back in the olden days when I was going to elementary school, Pluto was the ninth planet from the sun. Unfortunately, the "planet" label for Pluto has been revoked and it is now considered a dwarf planet. Alas, it still orbits the sun like our Earth, but it has not "cleared its neighborhood" which means it is not necessarily the dominant gravitational force in its orbital zone- there are some other big objects floating around on their own.
