I like it a lot.
I think that it can be very well understood as the Perl Camel - it is the first time that I am thinking of it as a female, though, but it fits really well!
e.g. in the first verse: Perl has lots of Jewels, that's right. A little later, Perl is a language which is perfectly firm on her two thighs (have a look at the Camel Lot6 talk slides
on Larry's Website, when he shows the evolution of Perl in the programming languages world... pretty straight!).
Etc., etc. There are so many "second degree" things that you can think of when reading that poem!
