A party in full swing, the music loud and bright,
Guests laughing and dancing, well into the night.
But among the crowd, a group stands apart,
Rowdy and wild, they’re ready to start.
They shout and they cheer, they jump and they spin,
Knocking over drinks, causing quite a din.
The host tries to calm them, but to no avail,
Their rowdiness only continues to prevail.
The other guests watch with a mix of delight and fear,
As the rowdy group continues to cheer.
They’re having fun, that much is clear,
But their antics are causing chaos, that’s also clear.
As the night wears on, their energy starts to wane,
And the party begins to calm once again.
The rowdy guests stumble out into the night,
Leaving behind memories of their wild delight.
The host sighs with relief as they survey the mess,
Grateful that nothing was broken, despite the stress.
Rowdy guests may bring excitement and fun,
But they also bring chaos when all is said and done.
