Pluto


Pluto…what are you?
I thought I knew
You now you say you’re something new
And what can I say,
You seem so far away…
You used to be a planet
You used to be so cute-OH
What happened, Pluto?
You say you haven’t changed
But it just doesn’t seem the same
You used to roll with the planetary crews
Now you’ve got nothing to lose
You ran into a wall
Out of planet-hood you did fall
But you still stand up tall.
You say, you don’t need them all
You used to be to cool
Now you look like a fool
You don’t seem to mind
You say, there’s better things to find
You said you’ve looked beyond the vanity of Saturn
You’ve set those bridges all to burn
You were once so close to Neptune
Now you’re a distant moon
I don’t mean to cause a fuss
But now, what will my very educated mother serve us?

Pluto…where did you go?
You used to go with the low
But you stopped and said ‘no’
You’ll be your own shooting star
You don’t need to be popu...lar
You said being a planet gets too much hype
You want a life of a different type
I know you’re still the same person
It just seems like a different version
I don’t understand, I admit
But you say there’s nothing to get
I don’t see a problem with being like Jupiter
Am I just getting stupider?
You say there’s nothing wrong with planets
That you just have a few regrets
You couldn’t handle the clamor
Of all the planetary glamour
Now you’ve got a different perspective
To be honest, it was unexpected
You say life as a planet is just a fad
So now you’ve let go of what you had
You’ve taken the time you find yourself
I guess that’s the most important wealth
Just a lesson for us here on Earth
Find yourself for what you’re worth.

poet Sara Teasdale

I would live in your love as the sea-grasses live in the sea,
Borne up by each wave as it passes, drawn down by each wave that recedes;
