The lyric quality of Jeff's message was lost in translation, which I've tried to restore as below:
Ode to banana plugs
The analog computers are programmed by wires
which walked away, when the computers retired.
To other loves with banana lugs
and everyone loves the piggyback plugs.
So fight entropy and bring the wires home
For love of analog and the law of Ohm.
