Blogfestivus-A Seasonal Short Story Writing Challenge: Letter to Donner


Dear Donner-or should I say…

Dear El Don aka The Stagfather???

My name is One-Horn and I am currently not a member of the ‘Reindeers of the Icelandic Antler Club’ due to being deemed apparently not worthy!

I hope you have noted my name……… One (not Two)-Horn! Yes, I would like to point out that I know, from first hand experience, what your racket is. Most reindeer do not realise the worth of their ‘horn’ in the way that you do! Quite a little side business you have since gaining the knowledge of the effects that ground up horn has on male virility? Not a bad market out there for the modern tired and stressed stag!

Here you are, in your retirement, enjoying the spoils of your ill-gotten gains, giving no thought to those of us you have maimed and left to survive with one or no horns at all!

My – how tranquil you look!

These next photos leave me quite emotional and wondering how you live with yourself!

Would your friends and neighbours treat you with the same respect if they knew how you made your fortune? If they knew the misery you have spread within the herd? To think-someone like you can decide whether or not I can join your club. It makes me wonder how much your quiet retirement and my silence on this matter means to you!

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely
