What is the worst birthday/summer party? Having
Nothing to wear, but no-nonsense pantyhose,
They found themselves tardy, and soon, everybody
Felt less confident, so they began to stare. Because
Of a dare, you put on your birthday suit.

The moment you began to give a hoot, your holler
Became silent when you gave up your dollar. You
Were in the know when you tried to put on a show.
Thinking that your act was funny, at least when I
Didn't catch on, it became a horror show.

Full of spice before I was grounded, I poured my
Coffee. Nonchalantly, I experienced the flavor
While I rid myself of it completely. As you would
Know it, I asked for love in my life, though I never
Found it.

What is the worst birthday/summer party? While
You were dancing heartily, you lost your shoes.
Taking up space, where you shouldn't, was
Embarrassing enough; When it was taken, it left
You with a memory fully shaken.
