A Man Like Pluto


Like Jupiter, his face always features at least one giant red spot

And Saturn's rings have found a second home beneath his eyes

The stifling clouds of Venus emanate from his throat

His eyes take on the hue of Mars

The craters of the Moon rival those in his skin

I hope his mouth doesn't look like Uranus

For Uranus' sake

The orbit of Neptune scarcely would fit within his nostrils

Even Mercury cannot orbit the sun as quickly as his appearance repels its viewers

How can the Earth tolerate such an alien creature?

He ought to be expelled from the solar system.

A man like Pluto.
