He Heard It on the Grapevine (idioms for eisenik)
When he heard it on the grapevine
he went ballistic for an hour or two
it would have been better to let sleeping dogs lie
than what he made me go through
and now I am in dire straights
it started with a face like thunder
he said, "I've got a bone to pick with you"
all innocence I stared at him in wonder
now I'm up the river without a paddle
and his anger will not be subdued
I'll never be in his good books again
so for all good purposes, I'm screwed
he was swearing a lot, saying pardon my French
revenge will be sweet, he spewed
so I racked my brain for something to say
to justify myself and the torrid affair
but I didn't want to open a can of worms
"don't say anything" he said, "don't you dare!"
he would have smacked me, I could tell
then like a Chinese whisper, menacingly low
he said, "If you lie down with the devil
you will wake up in hell".

did someone put a spell on you?
killea: yes indeed, was it you or some other wizard
this is original, it is funny you use the songtitels and idioms
but the poem is a little bit heavy, now i look for somebody else then the devil to sleep with,
well done J.
