Poem: The Tenth Planet (Or An Incredible Facsimile?)

click on this image of the tenth planet to enlarge...

Is it a planet or not?
It depends on
What it's orbiting around.

A planet must orbit a star.
Round objects floating freely
Through space don't count.

If an object orbits a much larger object
That is not a star
Then it's not a planet either.

Scientists are slated to announce
Very soon whether or not that rock
Floating out there is the tenth planet

Or not.
If it isn't
Then what?

The tenth planet on All This Is That
