For their princess' visit the ponies prepare,
Of her special guest they are not yet aware.
They know she is joined by someone quite vital,
And soon they are graced by the one with a title.
In a separate cart a statue is towed,
But their identity makes Twilight explode.
For resting in the seat is the one they've abhorred,
Yes, her guest is the villain Discord.
The mares are astounded; they don't want him back!
Does the princess remember his vile attack?
This is not at all what the ponies would choose,
But the situation the princess quickly does defuse.
She reminds them that they handed him a defeat,
Something that they could assuredly repeat.
The princess's plan involves kind Fluttershy,
She thinks she will turn him into a good guy.
AJ and a beaver then begin to fight,
When Flutters steps in and sets it all right.
The six gather round and the princess does leave,
Looking rather pleased and a little naive.
Through their powers the statue springs back into life,
And just through his stretching he causes some strife.
Their plans for reform he does quickly reject,
Because, really now, what did you expect?
Of their plans he's aware and he proceeds to gloat,
That they're even trying to turn this old goat.
Fluttershy threatens that she will unleash her stare,
Discord, unimpressed, just plays with her glare.
Pressing their advantage he fixes their profile,
But it's clear he is still in control all the while.
In time they return to Fluttershy's abode,
Where the other five he does his best to goad.
The others soon leave Flutter's brand new hotel,
And decide to discover an emergency spell.
Fluttershy then discovers him munching on paper,
His oddness not even beginning to taper.
Twi soon discovers the spells gone astray,
While Discord keeps nomming his pulpy buffet.
Twi finds the house floating high off the ground,
Endlessly spinning around and around.
Flutters still believes she can reach that home-spinner,
And she decides they will hold for the others a dinner.
The others arrive for the supper she'll cater,
Finding Discord dressed up just like a waiter.
He enchants the dishes as well as the food,
They soon run amok, greatly fouling the mood.
Discord's antics Flutters tries to defend,
After all she is trying to become his first friend.
In Angel soon runs and raises the alarm,
For flooding is rampant at Applejack's farm.
The beavers are under Discord's loose control,
As he keeps enjoying his awesome parole.
Fluttershy begs him to fix his hectic mess,
When Discord reveals he'll soon have his success.
He says that he'll fix it for just a small price,
Never on him will she use her device.
The others say no but she breaks and agrees,
With a snap of his claw the waters then freeze.
He's held up his side and she'll do the same,
He is triumphant, jeering hard at her shame.
Discord laughs that she'd be his friend and fellow,
But his words cause her to erupt and soon bellow.
His hatred, his actions, all are enough spurs,
She yells that he'll never be any friend of hers!
Discord doesn't care for this time he succeeds,
Companions the monster does not feel he needs.
But he has grown attached and feels quite dismayed,
Sighing he admits that he was well played.
To the pegasi's kindness he's truly succumb,
He'd rather be good than forfeit his first chum.
He meets the princess and reveals he's reformed,
A new draconequus, completely transformed.
Their work with the villain the princess approves,
Though the jewelry she decides to leave in their hooves.
Fluttershy must prod but she needs not a sop,
As he gives the series its first title drop.
As the episode ends they share an embrace,
One that might result in one big broken base.
But this one I enjoyed though present I was not,
No more must we fear all the terror he's wrought!
