Pluto A Planet Again? Poem by Spock the Vegan

Pluto A Planet Again?

Rating: 4.1


Pluto was a planet and now is a dwarf.
That is a reason to make some people barf.

They say that ‘dwarf' is politically incorrect,
And the people who changed it should be decked.

They think that scientists don't have the commission
To change planet's or any word's definition.

Alan Stern called it a name that starts with a B,
But change it back, we have to wait and see.

People love Pluto, and it takes an art,
to hate something that has a heart.

Yes I agree.We can not call Pluto a dwarf.We may give honor with our naming.Pluto has been our Planet till recently and some scientific discovery changes its status.It is politically incorrect to call this planet 'dwarf'

Yes, the whole Pluto problem is very confusing, but brings up a question that I find amusing: which experts have the right to decree what is a planet and what is debris?

Nice little poem. You have talent. The question is a good one since pluto appears to be part of a debris field.

Pluto cares not one bit what we think He'll still be there laughing and giving a wink As we perish in flames from some random debris That he hurled our way with alarming accuracy.
