An Essay in Existentialism (from my 2nd grader)

I've been meaning to post this since Thanksgiving but haven't until now. I hope you love it as much as I did--spelling and all.





The Death of Tom Turkey
by S--

Tom Turkey was getting quite fat. He new that Thanksgiving was comeing and that was the day they where planning to kill him. They also wanted his five red fethers and his ten orange fethers and his fifteen green fethers too. They wanted all his pretty fethers. He had a plan also. His plan was to peer throu the window right that day and see when the day before he would get killd so he could clime up on the tree and jump over the fence. So he went over to the window and all the sudden out of nowere a mashene gun shot him and paintball gun shot him dead and that was the end of Tom Terkey.

Awesome.

I love that he was shot twice - not only by machine gun, which I'm sure is standard, but also by a paintball.

I think the writers on strike will have a run for their money...if your little guy has anything to write about.

Poor Tom. His little turkey brain was no match for automatic weapons. Where are the gun control people when you need them?!

Great story . . . love the spelling.

This was just hilarious. "They wanted his five red fethers and his ten orange fethers and his fifteen green fethers too. They wanted all his pretty fethers." I can totally feel the paranoia and the tension. Kids are so great.
