In our culture and is

The way we describe

The world and

The universe.


Poor Pluto always gets

The short end of the


A son of Titans

Who shares the power

With Zeus and Poseidon

But his share is under

The earth where he

Watches over the deadPluto

And makes certain

All things grow.


He lives in hell with

His kidnapped bride

Who emerges from

The earth Apollo has

Warmed from the sky.


Now Pluto, once a dark

Planet on the outskirts

Of space, may not be

More than a comet or its trace.
