Differences

Written by: Joseph Fanesi

Rudolph was a lonely reindeer,
all because his nose was red.
How could he stand his life?
It seemed to be filled with dread.

Because of his nose,
They tormented him daily,
Chanting, name-calling,
Dancing so gaily.

All that fuss
over one little red nose!
But that's how kids are,
Even fawns, I suppose.

They got a laugh
at poor Rudolph's expense.
Dropping and building
their own false pretense.

Well, reindeers aren't real,
but I understand Rudolph's nose;
its hard to be liked
when one part of you glows.
