LOL... I had this sudden image of some sort of programming version of Paradise Lost with thousands of Perl Programmers flying around with wings battling the forces of Java and being cast into The Pit:

If thou usest Perl; But O how fall'n! how chang'd
From one of Java, who in the happy Realms of Light
Cloth'd with transcendent brightnes didst outshine
Myriads though bright.

So spake th' Apostate Anonymous Monk, though in pain,
Vaunting aloud, but rackt with deep despare.

With suddenly tilly rising up and saying
Better to reign with the CPAN, then serve with the JDK!
