Limerick Ode To Pluto

With all the renewed attention on Pluto, I’m hoping it will be re-designated a planet instead of a measly “dwarf planet.”

I often like staring at stars
And at planets, like Venus and Mars.
How I pity poor Pluto–
’Twas given the boot — oh
To be “plutoed” must surely leave scars.

Pluto Day is February 18th, in honor of its discovery on that day in 1930 at Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff, Arizona, by astronomer Clyde W. Tombaugh.

    You wielders of boots, look alert…
    You’ll get your deserts, I assert:
    Each one who has Plutoed
    Is surely left blue-toed!
    (Or red-shifted: that’s got to hurt!)
