Coming to life

If Toy Story could happen in real life
but with body parts instead of toys,
I wonder which characters my bits would be.
Woody is an obvious one.
My spindly pins would be Slinky Dog.
My arse cheeks would be Mr and Mrs Potatohead –
almost identical but one nicer than the other.
My futuristic thumbs are Buzz Lightyear,
making my dusty fingers jealous.
My Pringles gut is Hamm.
I’d love to say my nervous system is Bo Beep,
but we all know it’s Rex.
My brain can be Sid sometimes, which is a shame,
but I try my best to have three eyes and green skin.
