Life Cycle

Monday morning, felt rather ill,
coughing like a cow left out upon a foggy hill.
Tuesday evening, spitting up phlegm,
squawking down my nose like a great big rooster hen.
Wednesday my temperature went right off the scale
I was just as surely dying as a beached blubbing whale.
Thursday my heart was under great strain,
like King Kong trying to make himself a double daisy chain.
Friday I died at half past the hour of eight,
silent as an abattoir that's cleaned its daily slate.
By Saturday felt myself starting to revive,
as a bunny rabbit wakes up in a motor car head lights.
Sunday i was cured and strolling through the park,
like a butchers dog that found a bone while sniffing in the dark.

In case you would certainly notice the action pvc figure that usually are being created in these days, they look just like the action figure you watch on TV. They happen to be no longer merely anime figures but more of collector's goods. adult pvc figure today are generally no longer toys that you would want to play with because animation figure tend to be much too pricey and much too delicate with specifics.Gone are the days when you would buy anime pvc figures in boxes and then you would take anime figure out of the box once you get at home and play with anime model as rough as you want because pvc figures are meant to be played with that way.
