For turkeys

no emancipation

proclamation

though Abraham Lincoln ordained

A day of Thanksgiving

 

as hundreds of billions

by the axe have

stopped living.

 

Many presidents

have pardoned

each just 1 turkey

annually... yet

what was the bird's crime?

Do you know about Turkeys?

 

If not, don't you fear,

here I am, I'm here!

 

I'm going to tell you

all about Turkeys!

 

 

What does the turkey say?

 

Gobble, Gobble, Gobble, Gobble, Gobble, Gobble!

Gobble, Gobble, Gobble, Gobble, Gobble, Gobble!

Gobble, Gobble, Gobble, Gobble, Gobble, Gobble!

That's what the Turkey says!

 

 

What does a Turkey look like?

 

A turkey is a very big bird!

They have big long legs,

big long necks,

and tails that could look like fans!

 

They have short

and round wings.

 

They can have brown,

blue, or blackish feathers!

 

 

The male turkeys

have a funny looking red thing

that is on their necks,

and this funny thing is

called a wattle!

Author's Notes/Comments: 

This is a poem I wrote for kids to teach them about Turkeys...

When I said #WhatDoesTheFoxSay in my tags, I just wanted to make it clear that The tittle and maybe some words may sound like something from the song, but they are not meant to! When reading this, it can be read as a song, or poem, whichever works best!

 

Let me know if I should include anything else!

 

I got some of my information from:
