It was a turkey He could never have stood upon his legs, that bird He would have snapped 'em off short in a minute, like sticks of sealing wax.

    c'était une dinde qu'il n'aurait jamais pu poser sur ses pattes, cet oiseau qu'il les aurait arraché en une minute, comme des bâtons de cire à cacheter.

    यह एक टर्की था जिसे वह अपने पैरों पर कभी खड़ा नहीं कर सकता था, उस पक्षी को उसने एक मिनट में छोटा कर दिया, जैसे सीलिंग मोम की छड़ें।

    это была индейка, которой он никогда бы не смог встать на ноги, ту птицу, которую он сорвал бы через минуту, как палочки сургуча.
