Percussion Instruments

Remember, remember the Fifth of November,
The 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 the King and Parli'ment.
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.
Holla boys, Holla boys, let the bells ring.
Holloa boys, holloa boys, God save the King!
And what should we do with him? Burn him!


  1. Anonymous of the current time is doing more than what Guy Fawkes could do in the olden days. and with more precision than a laser scalpel...

    Or have you been watching too much V for Vendetta...?

  2. Ohh, I'd blowing up British parliament and the monarchy (successful or otherwise) was pretty laser precise in it's intended message....even by early seventeenth century standards.

    ....and no, I don't worship the ground James McTeigue and/or Hugo Weaving walks upon.
