Remember Remember the Fifth of November

Yes, it is Guy Fawkes Day once again, and all across the world people are celebrating it by watching the US election. The irony is delicious.

And in case you'd forgot, allow me to remind you.
Remember, remember the Fifth of November,
The Gunpowder Treason and Plot,
I see 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.
Holloa boys, holloa boys, let the bells ring.
Holloa boys, holloa boys, God save the King!

And if you have time to watch a movie, then make it V for Vendetta. You might never see a finer illustration of mission, resurrection, and Church. Here's a teaser to jog your memory.
