Remember, remember, the Fifth of November
Gunpowder treason and plot
I see no reason why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot
I’m sorry for your pets.
I’m sorry for the Firefighters.
I’m sorry for those with children sensitive to loud bangs.
Once a year, I love letting off fireworks.
I am considerate and only use Fireworks once a year so pet owners, Firefighters and parents of children who are sensitive to loud bangs all know that November 5th is the one night of the year that I let fireworks off.
Sure, we should have more public firework displays, but I enjoy doing it in my backyard while my daughter laughs and jumps and leaps and yells at the explosions.
I like celebrating the concept of blowing up Parliament, I like the idea that people shouldn’t be frightened of their Governments and that Governments should be frightened of their people.
Guy Fawkes is political rebellion and in a muzzled society that symbolism of rebellion is more desperately needed than ever before.
To those folk I say, you can take my Fireworks from my dead cold hands.
Happy Guy Fawkes everyone.
