AJ and Big Mac glance over their farm,

With Mac in a bandage from some prior harm.

The apples are ripening and ready to eat,

But bucking them all will be no easy feat.

Her brother is worried she'll not get it all done,

So AJ responds with a shout out to Top Gun!

She'll buck all these trees until they turn to pulp,

But she is betrayed by a worrying gulp.

We then see the opening and cut to our steed,

Working with Winona to stop a stampede.

She lassos the leader and diverts the herds,

Before sending them off with a lame play on words.

The townsfolk are thankful and give her an award,

With Twilight's annoyance and intro ignored.

AJ shows up late looking quite sleep deprived,

Frankly it's a wonder that she's even arrived.

She gives a quick word before dragging her prize,

And her lack of sleep Twilight soon does surmise.

Twilight goes to her, offering help and support,

But AJ ignores her, making Twi teleport.

Just where is her help from her many relations?

Well, they were just here for union celebrations.

Out of her stubborn pride she will go it alone,

And her hardness of head causes Twilight to groan.

We then switch scenes to impatient RD,

Waiting on AJ, an odd absentee!

She shows up exhausted after catching some winks,

Ready to assist in some flying high jinks!

She falls to the ground with her face going flatter,

Before launching Dash and becoming dark matter.

Twi goes to talk but her head hits a branch,

And at her helpful offers Applejack does blanch.

Yet again assistance she has to deny,

And her head still ringing she helps Pinkie Pie.

Each ingredient Applejack does add,

But she messes up and they start Baking Bad.

The rancid muffins turn them a sickly hue,

And somehow these horses are able to spew!

Twilight goes to AJ, once again to engage,

But AJ's fed up, lashing out in her rage.

To go count some rabbits she helps Fluttershy,

Though she has a rough way to make them comply.

She tries to corral them to end this affair,

But these corralled critters are easy to scare.

The bunnies take off in a mad rushing charge,

Running through the town, causing mayhem at large!

Twilight, now outraged, confronts her once more,

To accept her help she just has to implore!

AJ bucks a tree and gives a quick laugh,

For she's finished the harvest with her solo staff!

She then has to ask how she likes that apple,

But Big Mac shows up, a new problem to grapple.

Turns out she's not finished, with more still to go,

She then passes out onto the ground below.

Twilight brings her to and gives an ultimatum,

Preparing a speech that she'll recite verbatim.

Applejack agrees, much to her surprise,

The weariness showing on that poor mare's eyes.

Twilight then sighs, a smile now present,

And the others start helping with AJ's consent.

The work goes quickly and AJ brings juice,

Her body now resting from days of abuse.

She then thanks them all and they share a smile,

When Spike offers muffins both rancid and vile!
To make a new rhyme I don't need a reason,

So here's a new one for Applebuck Season!

Series keeps going strong and smart
Like your poems have been from the very start. ^^

Even if some rhymes may be a bit weak
The overall whimsy keeps it a fun read.

I especially laughed at the Top Gun and Dark matter rhymes:
They added nice meta humor to the punchlines. ;)

Keep up the good work! :thumbsup:

I'm reading this to the tune of 'Honor for All' (the Dishonored ending song). It fits :D

I really want the voice actress who does Zecora to read some of these! :D
Rhyming-Zecora Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2013
My good falsehood, I like how you think.

She's read one as of now, if you'll follow this link!

An excellent read, my fine, rhyming dame,

But I meant Brenda Crichlow, of MLP fame. ;)

The rhymes in this one felt a little off to me for some reason. I can't really explain it, they just felt a little forced, maybe? But it still's good overall and that Baking Bad line gave me quite the chuckle.

This one, I'll admit, was harder to write,

The early eps are harder, if you'll hear my plight.

They introduce characters that we've known for so long,

And it's harder to do that in a rhyme or song.

In the later eps, where their characters are set,

Then situations are the eps they beget.

In short, I agree, this was a bit hard,

But with pointless rhymes I didn't want to bombard.

Well, they certainly weren't pointless, but you can tell that it was a bit difficult for you this time around. I still think it's amazing that you're able to do this, nonetheless.
