V is for Vendetta

Happy Guy Fawkes Day!

Remember, remember the Fifth of November,
of 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 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!

(Yeah, not much of a holiday over here in the 'States. But I do know how I'll be celebrating.)
