It is the house of pleasure for fish.

I express the pleasure of fish that forgot to breed.

A frog living in deep forest was brought up city by a stoke.

The frog was run over, then the city was covered with jungle.

30 years ago, frogs strolled the streets in the center of Tokyo.

In rainy day, I often saw the dead frog that ran over.

A beautiful fresh pink organ was spilled on the black asphalt.
