Most of us know the rhyme associated with Bonfire Night and Guy Fawkes, however do know it in full?
The legend of the Gunpowder Plot of 1605 is recorded for all time by the following:
Remember, remember the fifth of November
The gunpowder, treason and plot
I see no reason why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot.
Guy Fawkes, twas his intent
To blow up King and parliament.
Three score barrels were laid below
To prove old England’s overthrow.
By God’s mercy he was catched
With a dark lantern and lighted match
Holler boys, holler boys, let the bells ring
Holler boys, holler boys, God save the King
