2160. Le jour de gloire est arrivé!

In France, today's quite a big deal
Celebrating how peasants did feel
'Bout the Sixteenth King Louis,
His reign went kablooey
The day that they stormed the Bastille.

My title is from the opening line of the French Nat'l. anthem.  Actually, Louis XVI wasn't deposed until August, 1792  but 7/14/1789 is recognized as the beginning of the French Revolution.  You purists will forgive my forcing the L's to be sounded in "Bastille."
