this guy is a fawkes...


Today is November 5th! Happy Guy Fawkes Day! Let's all celebrate the king and parliament not blowing up by lighting bonfires and having a beer. Cheers!

"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 Parliament.
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!"

I love that poem. It's fun to say. Kinda like the word "anarchy". :)
