Uranus, a Phriddle


Uranus,
like urn.
And poor
Pluto.
Bullied by semantic astronomers
Because he doesn’t dominate his neighborhood.
Urim,
like urn.
Paired with
Perfections.
Meaning, the lights, in Hebrew.
A mystical artifact from Heaven.
Uvula,
like super.
A polemic
Point of view.
Doc says it’s, uh, cancer of the diphthong,
and I have just one chance in five.
If you must, make it a eulogy.
Understand?


Sorry for reposting old junk, but I just got a rejection letter for this, and I still think it’s pretty good—wildly underrated even. [That guy needs a slice of humble pie.]

Anyways.

Nobody gets it. But there’s a cool meaning clearly hidden in there.
