We begin with Twilight's books off the shelves,

Stacked to the ceiling, they number in the twelves.

Spike looks and ponders how long reading will take,

When Twilight tells him he should go on a break.

The idea of a break gives spike a great pause,

But soon enough he's sniffing his own smelly claws.

We then hear the start of our ungulated cartoon,

Before Spike soon decides to ride in a balloon.

He finds out quickly that the rope is not taut,

For it doesn't take much force to untie the knot.

In order to catch it Spike takes to the skies,

But upon catching up on its own course it flies.

It lands in the forest with Spike in a fix,

As he's soon assailed by wolves made of sticks.

He's backed into a corner, wolves ready to attack,

When who should appear but our brave Applejack?

She bucks a few rocks at one lupine brute,

Before running for her life, wolves in hot pursuit.

While they're chasing AJ their numbers start dwindling,

And with a few fancy moves she turns them into kindling!

Spike meets with AJ after they've given chase,

Thanking her and giving a two-clawed embrace.

Now that the two are finally safe from harm,

Spike proceeds to walk her back to her farm.

They get back after a rather short jog,

And Spike helps Apple Bloom with cleaning a hog.

They finish and she runs to be fitted for skis,

But Spike's sense of duty this didn't appease.

He attempts to help with making some pies,

Seeming to fail at everything he tries.

Granny tells him to go speak to Twilight,

Who seems to brush off both him and his plight.

Spike's feelings AJ does not want to hurt,

So she has him deliver a revolting dessert.

Rarity's disgust she manages to hide,

Before trying to make AJ look at the upside.

Applejack says that it wouldn't be right,

When RD shows up to the window in flight.

She has an idea different from the white beauty,

Why not give Spike an impossible duty?

Rainbow gives him a job before which he should cower,

Tasking him with building a giant rock tower.

He builds then builds the tower, tall and quite steep,

And upon crashing through it RD lands in a heap.

AJ confronts Twilight about her poor choice,

Before finding the mare is ignoring her voice.

With a kick of an inkwell Twi gives quite a squawk,

And hearing of Spike's pledge leaves her in shock.

Applejack gives Spike a meaningless distraction,

The mane 6 get together and make a plan of action.

They set up a rather elaborate falsehood,

And create a puppet made out of some wood.

Applejack acts for Rarity to assess,

She must play a good damsel in distress!

Rarity tries showing how to act in woe,

But Spike then comes running and it's time to go!

Their plan runs smoothly, at least at first,

When suddenly it takes a turn for the worst.

Spike spots the fake by the lack of its breath,

Before real wolves appear, ready for some death.

AJ destroys them with a rock she does tumble,

But gets herself stuck after a clumsy stumble.

She finds herself no longer as agile or limber,

As one wolf starts reforming out of the timber.

Spike took up arms and the creature he smote,

After he threw a rock into the monster's throat.

AJ is thankful for Spike saved her life,

But he says they should try to stay out of such strife.

In helping out Twi Spike is quite insistent,

And all is now well for the number one assistant.
I wrote this in a hurry, so I am rather nervous,

But here's S3E9, Spike at Your Service!

how long does it take you to actually do this, Zecora?
Rhyming-Zecora Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2013
Around two hours is my average per rhyme,

But it's completely worth every second of time.
