Happy Guy Fawkes Night!

Nathaniel Christopher 3 Comments

Remember, remember the Fifth of November,
The Gunpowder Treason and Plot,
I can think of no reason
Why the Gunpowder Treason
Should ever be forgot.
Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes, t’was his intent
To blow up the King and Parli’ment.
Three-score barrels of powder below
To prove old England’s overthrow;
By God’s providence he was catch’d
With a dark lantern and burning match.
Holloa boys, holloa boys, let the bells ring.
Holloa boys, holloa boys, God save the King!

I am a resident of Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada, who has been blogging here for nearly 25 years. I enjoy sharing my thoughts and feelings on my own online platform. From 1998 until 2017, I worked as a journalist, and I have posted most of my articles in the 'News' section of this website.


  1. Look at what I did above. I made the year look like this … 2oo8

    With letters not numbers.
    I meant 2008.

    But Nathaniel does the w00t thing I do the 2oo8 thing.


  2. This is such an inspiring quote….

    A line from Barack Obama’s acceptance speach….

    “It grew strength from the young people who rejected the myth of their generation’s apathy who left their homes and their families for jobs that offered little pay and less sleep.”

    That line really connected with me last night when Obama gave his speach. I was walking home and I saw it on A TV in a bar Nathaniel hates. Every one in the bar was silent watching it. No drinks were being served. Canucks were winning 3 – 0 and no one cared.

    HISTORY HAPPENED. People in this bar in Vancouver ignored the Canucks to watch this man speak. This really speaks volumes. It really takes a lot in 2008 to inspire people that much.

  3. Slow blogging day Nathaniel?

    This reminds me of when a pie eating competition was on the cover of the Nanaimo Daily News.

    It is funny how this old poem uses the slang, “Holla”.
