Remember, remember the fifth of November,
gunpowder, treason and plot,
I see no reason why gunpowder treason
should ever be forgot.
Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes,
'twas his intent
to blow up the King and the Parliament.
Three score barrels of powder below,
Poor old England to overthrow:
By God's providence he was catch'd
With a dark lantern and burning match.
Holloa boys, holloa boys, make the bells ring.
Holloa boys, holloa boys, God save the King!
Hip hip hoorah!

V for Vendetta is one of the finest pieces of literature that I have ever had the pleasure of reading. I'll have a lengthy post on the graphic novel in the near future. Until then, in lieu of actual content, I give you the Guy Fawkes rhyme in its entirety, as found on Wikipedia.
