Bonfire Night

 

 

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 remember the last Bonfire night we had in England. My brother and I put sparklers in the back garden and ran around them. My dad was even the bonfire master that year.

My Grandparents phoned this morning and I could hear the fireworks going off in the distance!! Nice to know Guy Fawkes is being burnt in effigy once again!
