We begin with Flutters asleep in her bed,
Rainbow wakes her up, full of much dread.
Flutters, quite groggy, asks Rainbow why,
And we find out the reason is one Pinkie Pie.
She binges on cider before RD gets her share,
But they soon discover Pinkie has beat them there.
The line of tents stretch as far as she sees,
And RD's want for cider this does not appease.
The next morning the ponies all stand in a line,
Waiting their turns to grab their own stein.
Flutters gets her cider, but it was the last drop,
Just before Rainbow the supply does stop.
The ponies are unhappy they now must abstain,
They begin to grumble and loudly complain.
AJ responds that it is made with heart,
It may take some time but it sets them apart!
The ponies still mumble but soon turn around,
As they begin hearing a peculiar sound.
A motive-locomotion is the source of the noise,
And as it lumbers forward Granny's fence it destroys.
Stopping in front of confused civilians,
Out pop a duo of vaudevillians!
They launch into a flashy, prepared duet,
Causing poor Granny to become upset.
The family is offered a deal by the pair,
But their part of the cut simply isn't fair!
They decline the offer but the pair sure aren't through,
Announcing true intentions they bid them adieu.
The next day soon comes and again they run dry,
When who should drive up with a brand new supply?
RD receives her first mug to be downed,
But it sadly ends up just soaking the ground.
Granny tries to get them to throw in the towel,
But soon loses her cool when she's called a fowl.
A contest will be held; who can make the most cider?
The winner would be Ponyville's sole provider.
Over the contest the mayor does proctor,
And we get a rather nice nod to The Doctor.
The Apples get started and are quickly working,
While non-magic tasks the brothers are shirking.
At making their cider the family excels,
But they just can't match up to Flim and Flam's spells.
In order to get themselves out of this fix,
They soon accept help from the rest of the six.
The brothers then panic and double the power,
They can't be outdone at the end of the hour!
The two teams work hard but when all's said and done,
The brothers have more and declare that they've won.
They walk up to the Apples and begin berating,
Revealing their laughs are nothing short of grating.
Flim and Flam do their best to cheer the townsfolk up,
They set up their stand and hand them a cup.
Their drinks are revolting, the townsfolk soon respond,
The brothers then panic and choose to abscond.
The Apples return from where they had been packing,
And RD even gets the cider she's been lacking.
AJ then prepares to write her own letter,
But this one the normal rules do not fetter,
In her traditional, sweet southern drawl,
Applejack reports she has learned nothing at all.
She writes the best letter of all of her peers,
And our episode ends with a motion of cheers!
