Lost in Translation

This challenge is simple: write a poem/story* in English about anything and publish it. Then copy/paste it into Google Translate, and post the translation as a sequel. Do this at least twice (English and two other languages), going straight from one language to another (don’t go back to English in between.) It would be nice if you posted a comment saying which language it went from/to. The last sequel should be a translation back to English. Then we can see how much of the original work remains. The winner will be whoever has the funniest/strangest translation at the end. (To be fair, this will be determined by a vote.)

Good luck, and happy translating!!

*Prose is fine, but keep in mind the more abstract the original, the more it will change when translated.
