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

penny for the guy

  • “Remember, remember
  • the Fifth of November
  • is gunpowder treason and plot.
  • I see no reason
  • why gunpowder treason
  • should ever be forgot.
  • Knock at the door,
  • ring the bell.
  • Have you got a penny for
  • singing so well ?
  • If you haven’t got a penny
  • a ha’penny will do
  • If you haven’t got a ha’penny
  • then God bless you !!”
