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