Well, that ended disastrously...
PROMPT: "The holiday party turned into a gathering of pure horror."


Well, that ended disastrously...


Everybody was enjoying the meetup
Drinking wine, Dancing blind,
Some even sitting with their feet up
They were all in a positive frame of mind.

They thought of it as merriment,
Santa had come to town,
A gratuitous element
Turning frown's upside down!

Presents by the fir tree
The jolly tunes playing,
All were carefree
To the music, they were swaying.

Yet something sinister
Was about to happen,
An unexpected visitor
Wearing shoes with a pattern.

Masked with a grimace,
Teeth as yellow as a sunflower
A terrifying premise
For the one with no power.

Knock, knock, knock,
Over the music, it could be heard,
Heads turned in shock,
"Who could that be?" Jared slurred.

He made his way to the door,
Drunkenly stumbling on his feet,
Through the Christmas decor,
To the unknown, he goes to meet.

As soon as he opened it up,
His eyes were on the gun,
The unknown visitor had already entered the pub
And it was much too late to run.

The visitor took a step,
Then took another,
Put the gun to Jared's head
And sneered: "You're dead, my brother."

Their stomach's churned,
To the voice of the shocker
The holiday party had turned
Into a gathering of pure horror
