Restoring Pluto

Pluto, refuse to be belittled so.
Demand your status be returned.
Shout, "Reinstate me as a world!"

When we launched a probe, we learned
you wear a heart so large, despite
your rude exclusion from the pack.

As greatness states no minimum,
Earth's smaller to diminish you.
Think big, stay sweet. Be patient, too.
