What's the story behind the camel?
Just for the fun.
Glossing Claude Nougaro (a french singer):
Perl is a starry night guiding camelful of words in the desert.
Sometimes crossing some bony remains, languages rendered inert.
My oh my, why did I wonder into those dunes so soon ?

"I enjoy your thirst", he

"drink this, water for the mental".
And I would have
drink the verses,
of a language so fondamental.
