On the 12th Night of Hydro Savings, My Energy Display gave to me, Monnn-ney Saaa-vings!

As I awoke from the couch, amongst all of this the clatter. I turned to my energy display, to see what was the matter.

The television was on, and the lights were dim lit. The display read 21 cents, and my hydro bill was to take a big hit.










I looked in the mirror, with a surprise and a frown. With a leap and a bound, I can get this reading down.

I found myself humming, oh what a wonderful song. The 12th Night of Hydro Savings, committed to savings all year long!

My eyes how they twinkled, my dimples so merry. When that next hydro bill comes, it won’t be that scary.

I spoke not a word, and went straight to my bed. As visions of money and energy savings, danced in my head.

I heard myself exclaim, as I turned off that last light. Happy Money Savings to all, and to all a good night.
