V for VendettaPOEMRemember rememberThe fifth of NovemberThe Gunpowder, Treason and PlotI know of no reasonWhy the Gunpowder TreasonShould ever be forgot. Guy Fawkes and his companions Did the scheme contrive, To blow the King and Parliament All up alive. Threescore barrels, laid below, To prove old England's overthrow. But, by God's providence, him they catch, With a dark lantern, lighting a match! A stick and a stake For King James's sake! If you won't give me one, I'll take two, The better for me, And the worse for you. A rope, a rope, to hang the Pope, A penn'orth of cheese to choke him, A pint of beer to wash it down, And a jolly good fire to burn him. Holloa, boys! holloa, boys! make the bells ring! Holloa, boys! holloa boys! God save the King! Hip, hip, hooor-r-r-ray!Guy fawkes night quizBonfireFireworksGuy FawkesGunpowder plotJames I
