Don’t Get Shocked

One-line poetry response to this prompt by Michael Trent

Don’t ever splice wires with tape,

Or ropes, or hair, do what’s safe,

Use a nut, like this one here

Shock is what you need to fear!

Kinda lame, I know, but all I could think of in a pinch!

Thanks to Harper and Kathy and the whole Chalkboard team!
