Poem in your pocket today

Today I gave a talk to the Renaissance Institute at the College of Notre Dame, Maryland on Pluto and its Planethood. Therefore, the Poem in My Pocket today was

Pluto was a planet.
But now it doesn't pass.
Pluto was a planet.
They say it's lacking mass.
Pluto was a planet.
Pluto was admired.
Pluto was a planet.
Til one day it got fired.

This was from a children's book - I'll look up the author and title and post them tomorrow. Oops, found it! The wonders of the internet led me to Publishers Weekly, which had an article of the book and the Great Planet Debate. This is from Comets, Stars, the Moon, and Mars (Harcourt) by Douglas Florian.

What Poem are you carrying around today?
