Bonfire Night

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.


About Ask Liesmith

All that is gold does not glitter. Not all those who wander are lost. The old that is strong does not wither. Deep roots are not reached by the frost. From the ashes a fire shall be woken. From the shadows a light shall spring. Renewed shall be blade that was broken. The crownless again shall be king. (---J.R.R. Tolkien)
