More Electrical Poetry

This comes from the HGTV series, "House Detective" with Mike Nelson (episode "Double Trouble for Duplex"):
(snap fingers to a jazz rhythm)
When they hooked this place up --
kind of jazz-style -- they improvised...
They took a wire here, and a wire there
And put them everywhere.
It's probably not ground
But could burn your house down.
Yeah!

I think I'd rewrite this as:
(snap fingers to a jazz rhythm)
When they hooked this place up --
kind of jazz-style -- they improvised...
They took a wire here, and a wire there
And hooked them everywhere.
It's probably not grounded
So it could burn your house down.
Yeah!

I'm always on the lookout for some good technical poetry and verse, like that.
