    Welcome to the forums.
    I'm more familiar with blessings than curses.

    It has the format of a curse, I guess, but I've never heard it.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
