Inspried by taking on responsibilty.
1) To get what’s coming to you (i.e. get your comeuppance). – Urban Dictornary
Dire pills swallowed, bearing the music…
Rats They fought the dogs and killed the cats, And bit the babies in the cradles, And ate the cheeses out of the vats, And licked the soup from the cook’s own ladles.
