Olive, the Othered Reindeer

"I'm sorry I laughed and called you names. I was sick with guilt, but I thought it was what I had to do to fit in. I should have known it was pointless. What I represent to Dancer, Prancer, Donner, Blitzen, all of them…it isn’t going to change. Me, on the outside looking in, that’s just part of how the world works for them. I suppose I should resent how you guide Santa’s sleigh. How they all love you, how you'll go down in history. But I haven’t a hoof to stand on. I’m sorry Rudolph."

I was so scattered when I first read this one that I actually missed the pun. I like the pun (and would suggest that you not use it as the title), but I feel like the rest of the piece is a little bit flat. A good effort, nonetheless.
