This poem describes Pluto's Reclassification. See below for Background Link.
"Where Oh! Where, Pluto, Have You Gone?"

There's no need
to hide your unique orbit
around the sun--
or your basically
round shape,
There's just one area
where you didn't pass muster--
You are dominant
gravitationally.

Does this mean you soar
outside our solar system
at least part of the time and
it's not even your choice?
Please defend yourself,
as you have been dubbed
a Dwarf Planet,
We earthlings are left with
eight planets in our solar system.

Imagine Pluto all by himself
gliding through the Milky Way.
An observer can almost see
a tail, four legs, and a mouth.
Pluto seems to be chomping
down on a doggie bone and
has very little control of gravity.
There goes his tail:
Was it sucked up by a black hole?
