It was that day again where Guy Fawkes was found by the law.
Being dragged off to prison he was rough handled and sore.
But the worst was to come when treason was his crime.
He was then dragged through town on a hurdle.
The beginning of a fearsome fine.
But Fawkes knew his fate was god aweful so he cheated like all heck.
Jumped the execution stage and with it broke his neck.
His partners were not so lucky and suffered the full force of the law.
And so for some time the parliament was safe a while more.

    Thanks Peter. I hadn’t known that he’d escaped the flames... and me a Brit who has celebrated many a 5th November with fireworks and flames!
