Lonely Pluto

11/30


Poor Pluto.
Stripped of your PLANET status
to Dwarf Planet.

Was it really necessary?
To make such a fuss,
itís only crime of orbiting.

Being included- but only just.
Always at the outer edges,
sufficiently interesting to be acknowledged-

Not enough to be closer
to the inner circle.
How much I feel for that isolated distance.

Accepted with bias.
Looked down upon by a ski slope nose.
Iím ashamed to not be abundantly pretty...

Almost measuring up
to endless unwritten rules.
Only to miss the invisible mark.

But! This is not about me.

Lucky Pluto!
I envy you.
Too far away to hear the taunts.
