the fifth of November
Gunpowder, treason and plot.
We were busy in the city yesterday, so my vague plans for a Guy Fawkes’ Day Blowout weren’t realized, but we did gather enough wood for a nice bonfire tonight or tomorrow. Tonight, I hope. Because “sixth” fits very neatly into the rhyme, where “seventh” doesn’t.
So there! Decided! If you’re local, we’ll be on Crescent Beach tonight, toasting the traitor— and others more recently passed— with beer, ballad, marshmallow and rhyme. Oh, and a miniature bonfire.
We see no reason why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot.
