Why is Pluto not considered a planet anyway? Love your style, especially the titles :)

Well, the reason Pluto is not considered a planet is because of how it was formed. It's actually rather logical for it to be given another name.

Oh yeah that does make sense :) I never got the chance to study much ...would that be considered astronomy?

I have absolutely no idea. I don't remember how I learned this... I just, know it. It happens to me a lot. Very confusing sometimes. Heh.

Lol now THIS is what I call entertaining poetry:D Completely agree, by the way. Pluto's right there, folks.  The style was really interesting, and I like the random rhyme scheme.

... I'm going to be honest here. I've only ever written two rhyming poems. One was a sonnet and the other was random and I just made it rhyme because. I despise rhyming poems. The majority I want to murder in cold blood. Exceptions include Robert Frost Poems, Edger Allan Poe, and that's about it. That's all. o.o

I understand. A lot of my best poems don't rhyme.

-just realized she could have used a horrible pun involving your name-

 

I just find that most rhyming poems sound too sing-song.

 

PS Did you get your name from Chicago?

Yes, a lot of them sound childish, although if used correctly they can be very good.

 

And yes, I did, I just saw it on Broadway:D That's my favorite song.

 

He had it coming...


He had it coming...

 

He only had himself to blame.

 

If you'd have been there.

 

If you'd have seen it.

 

I betcha you would have done the same.

This is really cool! I think Pluto should still be a planet...

I believe it's a dwarf planet now? Anyways, I understand why it's not a planet. This poem really doesn't reflect my views on Pluto being a planet or not. xD Anyways, I'm just excited to say to my grandchildren or any children when I'm old and pretending to be senile. "When I was your age, Pluto was a planet!"
