And that, my dears, is why the rings

The planet collected moons:
two became three, then four, then five
as the children grew more numerous,
naturally, they shrank;
with crowding came strife
they butted heads
and other parts
till there were so many
chips off the old blocks
their parent felt surrounded
but this was a product of two dimensional thinking
after all, the poles saw nothing but clear sky
and stars
and the moons?
nought but dust now
