In fact his name is Greek for 'about' or 'around'
For being close to the action Perry is renowned
That's why his name is often used as a starting sound
A regular dentist takes a look at your teeth
While a periodontist looks above and beneath
He checks the gums around your teeth
When the moon is as close to the Earth as can be
That part of its orbit's called its perigee
No closer can it be
And you know how the Earth revolves around the sun?
When it can't get any closer, that's its perihelion
It's journey toward the sun is done
Perry travels all around, he's so energetic
He's always on the move, he's peripatetic
It's a good thing he's athletic
Perry is a guy who gets around!
