Besides bonfires and fireworks, the Gunpowder Plot has come to be remembered with various rhymes. The most popular may well be the one below, which was repeated in both the graphic novel and the motion picture V For Vendetta:
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 (or by God's mercy*)
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!
Below is a clip from the film V For Vendetta, which quotes the first few verses of the rhyme:
Happy Bonfire Night, everyone!
