Hey Perl, it's been a while
I used to use you in, always in style

Not everyone appreciated
the cool code, that I created
But there were those special few (Perl Monks!)
who knew, what I saw in you

They asked me hey, write me a regex
I'd say, of course, nothing is too complex
If only they had appreciated
what to them, seemed so discombobulated

Maybe I am just a little old-school
but I still think that Perl is cool
