This is what I’d do if I was a Thanksgiving turkey.

If I were a Thanksgiving turkey, I would feel terrified, and worried because I wouldn’t want to be killed then eaten. I would also think “ I don’t want to die!” and “ help me!” because I don’t want to be killed. I would say “ I gotta get out of here!” and “ We need to escape this place!” because I wouldn’t want to be dinner . I would try to escape the farm and find a safer place to live and wear a disguise so they wouldn’t know how I am because I don’t want to die. That’s what I would do, say, feel, and think if I were a Thanksgiving turkey.

I would think “It’s ok, it doesn’t matter.” I’d say a short and say a sweet goodbye to Breanna turkey. I would simply ask “Why am I being cooked?” to my family. I would just accept my fate and leave this earth as quickly as I entered it. I would do that if I was a Thanksgiving turkey.

If they used a gun I would run and hide in a small crevice that they can’t fit in.
