Remember, Remember the Fifth of November… Guy Fawkes Day

Remember Remember the 5th of November...

Remember Remember the 5th of November…

Remember, remember the Fifth of November,
The Gunpowder Treason and Plot,
I know of* no reason
Why the Gunpowder Treason
Should ever be forgot.
Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes, t’was his intent
To blow up the King and Parli’ment.
Three-score barrels of powder below
To prove old England’s overthrow;
By God’s providence he was catch’d
With a dark lantern and burning match.
Holloa boys, holloa boys, let the bells ring.
Holloa boys, holloa boys, God save the King!

Also remember: “People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.”

Happy Guy Fawkes Day.
