Please to remember the fifth of November,
Gunpowder, Treason and Plot.
We know no reason why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot.

Happy Guy Fawkes day to all who celebrate!
(trying to import the celebrations here... it's coming slow but it's coming)

Also - happy V day - the inspiration for this memory :)

boom baby boom!

A stick and a stake for James' sake,
So please remember the bonfire.
Fifty barrels lay below
To blow for England's overthrow.
A dark candle and a lighted match -
That is how old Guy was catch.
Holler, boys, holler!
Let the bells ring!
Holler, boys, holler!
God save the King!
Penny for the Guy?

Penny for the Guy!

I found it in the following form off Wiki.

Remember, remember the Fifth of November,
The Gunpowder Treason and Plot,
I know of no reason
Why Gunpowder Treason
Should ever be forgot.
Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes, t'was his intent
To blow up 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!

That would be Tennyson's form if I remember correctly. They're all basically correct as it's Living Folk history - and such things change over time.

Happy Guy Fawkes night!
