Okay, maybe one more?

I cried on that day
when it all came together
and finally worked

<FYI: Please do not consider this for the contest, I was just having fun :D >

If I help translate
This contest's terms to français
Can I enter then?

Je trouve ça dommage
Pas pouvoir participer
Vive le Québec libre!

Not a real entry, unfortunately. Just a few miles away from the Ontario border. So close yet too far. ;)
