The Un-Planet Has Four Moons

The Un-Planet Has Four Moons

 

By Elton Camp



Despite being round with an orbit of its own,

As being considered a planet, Pluto is gone



Since the 1970s, of moon Charon we’ve known

Now the number of satellites to four has grown



Old Pluto may well look and quack like a duck

But in the eyes of astronomers, it is out of luck



And to most of us, a planet Pluto will always be

Its demotion to “dwarf” makes no sense to me



If to humans the same principle we should apply

To aspire to being a person, a midget needn’t try



(The fourth satellite has just been discovered and hasn't been named yet.)
