Pluto's Revenge

My name is Pluto and I'm sad.
I've lost the claim to fame I had.
I used to be a planet, but,
Just recently, my name was cut!
I do not dominate the field
Where I'm located, it's revealed.
Science says I am too small
To be a planet, after all.

The asteroids go hurtling by.
They used to flash and holler "Hi."
But now they turn away from me,
For I've lost my identity!
The stars all giggle every night.
Then try to blind me with their light.
I have no friends, I'm ostracized.
A foreign object in my skies.

You wouldn't believe the things I hear,
For insults float the atmosphere!
But I'll get even, wait and see.
I'm eating Wheaties faithfully.
So someday I'll be big and strong.
Then prove those scientists are wrong!
You'd best watch out, down there on earth.
I'll overwhelm you with my girth!

I think this is entertaining and amusing and the rhyming couplets really make the poem flow very smoothly. Thanks for the smile on my face.
Regards,
Bill

Dublin Boy:  Thank you very much!  I'm glad it amused you.  Welcome to this site by the way.  I believe I saw your name as a newcomer a day or so ago!

Dear Betty,

This is so clever and timely.  Poor Pluto.  At least he had his taste of glory for a while. Joyce

Dear Joyce;  Thanks.  I can't believe yet that they have banned Pluto from their planetary roster! It won't seem the same without his name in there.

Love
Betty Lou
