Bonfire Night


As we celebrate bonfire night

Let us remember when it all began

Guy Fawkes tried to blow up Parliament

The government of the day was not a fan

 

His attempt to destroy failed

For his treachery he was hung

Today we all celebrate bonfire night

With everyone having lots of fun

 

With fireworks and sparklers

Jumping jacks, bangers and mushy peas

The fire burning lightening up the sky

See the rockets flying over the trees

 

The smell of bonfire toffee

Fireworks displaying so bright

The fire well alight now

Lightning up the darkest night

 

Remember to be careful

For fireworks can burn and maim

Let your parents light them all

Keeping all away from hurt and pain

  2. Guy Fawkes was an anarchist, burned at the stake for treason, and rightly so. Some would say governments, once elected, forget they were put there by the people and the people have the right to remove them.

  3. This really is a beautiful poem. I never knew that guy Fawkes wasn’t actually a fictional character, it’s good to know 🙂
