Twilight is reading for a coming exam,
When she does receive a singing telegram.
For Gummy's birthday there'll be a celebration,
As each friend learns through a singing invitation.
There AJ and RD are playing a game,
When Pinkie announces it is far too tame.
If they only are going for the apples that bobbed,
They're missing the fun and are getting robbed!
They dunk their heads in and find a few jokes,
While Pinkie checks with the rest of the folks.
They all have their fun and say it's a blast,
And Pinkie bemoans that it cannot last.
Twilight remarks they should meet again soon,
Leading to a party the next afternoon.
She invites them all again to her social convention,
But each has something requiring their attention.
Twi needs to study, AJ needs to pick,
And Rarity's mane is now covered in "ick".
The fliers are housesitting for Harry the Bear,
Well, more like cavesitting his homey little lair.
Pinkie is stumped; all her friends are quite busy!
But she soon sees a scene that sends her in a tizzy.
Twilight is sneaking into The Cake's shop,
And when shushing the Mrs. the music does stop.
Pinkie listens in through her ceiling can,
Finding out quickly Twilight has a plan.
She follows Twilight and puts on a disguise,
And on the mare's actions she certainly spies.
The package is passed to each faithful friend,
Their coldness towards her she cannot comprehend.
This culminates with her chasing down Rainbow Dash,
Demanding to know what is kept in that cache.
RD flees and finds safety in Applejack's barn,
Sticking poor AJ with spinning a quick yarn.
She claims renovation but Pinkie doesn't bite,
And to get a look in the barn Pinkie puts up a fight.
Staring down AJ she starts to retreat,
Burned by her "friends" and their heartless deceit.
She must find their plan and vile machinations,
So she turns to Spike for some real explanations.
Spike wants her jewels and acts quite sincere,
Leading him to tell her just what she wants to hear.
Of her friends true feelings she is now aware,
Depressing the pony and straightening her hair.
She feels all alone and rather betrayed,
Causing her coat to turn a darker shade.
Now that Pinkie is feeling rather estranged,
We witness a scene that's rather deranged.
With some dressed up objects Pinkie now communes,
As we hear in the background creepy carny tunes.
Pinkie keeps twitching and looks rather hostile,
Something not helped by her creepy slasher smile.
She takes the advice of the sack and the rock,
Before at her door she soon hears a knock.
Rainbow is there to show her a surprise,
But Pinkie's had enough of her "friends" and their lies.
Rainbow Dash observes this disconcerting scene,
Before finding herself wearing its cuisine.
She then drags Pinkie to the barn by her mane,
Ignoring her resistance and open disdain.
Opening the door there's a cheer most hearty,
Her friends have thrown her a surprise party!
But Pinkie Pie's anger this cannot assuage,
As she begins ranting and showing her rage.
They lied, they hid, and they've now kicked her out,
She continues her tirade with yet another shout.
Her outrage the ponies then try to allay,
Pointing out that the cake is for her birthday.
Pinkie looks around, eyes full of fear,
But her anger is lifted and all becomes clear.
A smile returns to the pink pony's face,
And she grabs all her friends in a caring embrace.
She asks their forgiveness and the party does start,
Joy finally returning to the bouncy mare's heart.
