Remember, remember the fifth of November
The gunpowder, treason and plot.
I can think of no reason,
Why the gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot.
I’m not English but I have a special affinity for this night. It’s my firm belief that the odd riot, burning car and uncivil uprising helps keep our erstwhile public servants on their toes. It’s been quite some time in our great nation, since the tree of liberty was refreshed with the blood of patriots or tyrants (–Jefferson); be on the lookout for your chance to do so. I will be.
