Poetry About Energy

With the launch of the Energy Conservation Club coming up in less then a month, we should start the conservation ball rolling.  With that, we would like to see some conservation poetry.  It does not have to be an epic poem like the Song of Roland, or have iambic pentameter, or even rhyme.

Here is an example of a conservation haiku:

The phantom load is
Always about my devices
I must unplug them

Or a quick little rhyme

There once was a man from Nantucket
He paid for energy in a bucket
But when he got home
He could not hook it up to the phone
And is still sitting there today

So send your poems here. We will publish the best poem on our blog.
