Remember to replace snake with ethernet cable, don't unplug on me

It's a beacon for all who share our dream
of a new day without domination
It's the hope of the peoples now oppressed and
a symbol of their own emancipation

Hurrah for the shell of the free!
May it ping as our standard forever,
Gateway to the LAN with its beep,
Banner MOTD.
Let opers remember the day
When our hackers with mighty endeavor
Proclaimed as they typed in the fray
That by their might and by their right
It pings forever.
