I can play this Game too

You’re not playing with a full deck, Honey?
Well, thanks to you, neither am I…so
I’m gonna go out on a limb for you
Yep, just as soon as pigs fly

Always said actions speak louder than words
So, now, my mouth’s gonna be full of lies…
What’s that? Oh, sure, I’ll put a sock in it…
soon as I ascertain your goodbyes.

I’ll start by giving you a taste of your own medicine
and then bask in your disillusions,
confusion like a chicken with its head cut off
then maybe you’ll understand my dilusions.

Speaking of chicken, this game is finger lickin good
And once you discover my deliberate plot
You’ll know you’ll win, over my dead body
And we all know, X marks the spot…

This is a post for Saturday Poetics over at Dverse ~Poets pub.  Go check out some more idioms...
