Solar System Poems 13: Bouncing between these worlds

Born in the deep until it was time for a change. 
One misplaced letter from being Pluto's best friend,it took 
a different path instead.

Sometimes it looks like a rock star, 
sometimes its hair is surprisingly long.
Perhaps no coincidence it prefers a co-dependent atmosphere?

Bouncing between these worlds 
it may not be long for the path it's on 
before moving somewhere closer to the sun. 
Wise, indeed.
