It's kind of Goofy, but it's true.
In spite of what we thought we knew,
ol' Pluto isn't worth his bark
way out there deep in space.
This is no Mickey Mouse-ish ruling.
All those textbooks from our schooling
have been rendered out-of-date.
The dog has been dethroned.
The tally proves he's no Survivor.
Pluto's torch has lost its fire.
The tribe has spoken and the pup's
been voted off for good.
So as you stargaze late at night,
remember "facts" aren't always right.
When science dines on just desserts,
sometimes it's humble pie.
|PO BOOKS BY GREG ASIMAKOUPOULOS
Sunday Rhymes & Reasons
Published June 4, 2009
Sunday Rhymes and Reasons is a compilation of inspirational poetry by America's pastor/poet laureate, Greg Asimakoupoulos. In this, his third volume of poetry, Pastor Greg paints word pictures that portray both the struggle and fulfillment that define a life of faith. His repertoire of rhymes celebrate rite-of-passage occasions like birth, baptism, marriage and death as well as the major holidays of the church and culture. It is a volume that illustrates the poet's love of words and of popular culture. The author dips his brush into a paint box of hubris, humor and honesty.
