Because nobody will ever try to extract the post (or its broken-off bottom), or if they do, they certainly won’t hoist it out by brute force, or if they do use brute force, they certainly won’t damage the power cable, or if they do damage it, well, fireworks are glorious.

Fortunately there was no glory this time, just a lot of sweat.
