Literal Idioms Part 2

A Poem by Peach

Literal Idioms

If you let a cat out of a bag,

Mercy’s your middle name.


If you’re a woman of few words,

Bless the man’s hearing.


If somethings alive and kicking,

The baby’s ready for life.


If you want to crack someone up,

For beginners, use a flower vase.


If you have a certain gut feeling,

Maybe it was the food you ate.


If someone lost his head,

Blame the executioner.


If somethings in the bag,

There’s something in that bag.


If someone asks you to lend them your ear,

Slice that ear and hand it over.


If you’re not playing with a full deck,

Grab a few more cards.


If someone’s on the wrong foot,

Start with their other foot.


If someone accuses you of pulling their leg,

Remove those dirty hands and leave.


If x marks the spot,

Why not a, b, what about c?

'If someone asks you to lend them your ear,
Slice that ear and hand it over.

Now that's an artistic touch :D

Like your style, say it as it is and cut out all the waffle !

A witty piece indeed, well thought out !

Again funny set of idioms that made me laugh. I liked this one more than the first because it was a little bit more surprising. :D
