Many a flame, brightens the sky Such events to re-enact A plot in vain that would underlie A pre-determined pact

Brought up as a Catholic child Beliefs that would not wane The distinct view of Protestants Reflecting royal reign

The disapproving treatment then Catholic Priests and all Of secret church services Hidden holes – no fall

A venture to the land of Spain Discover and to fight A brave and learned soldier Gunpowder to alight

Plans devised, against the king Thomas Winter’s plot Fawkes informed and now assigned Such tales were not forgot

A secret meet within the Inn Robert Catesby lead A gang adjoined as one to swear Our plans will go ahead

A parliamentary opening Imminently placed For barrels rolled into the night Hidden without trace

A letter sent to Monteagle Reward for such a warn Uncovered act, to light a fuse The truth of which be sworn

Hidden in the cellar below O’ Guy to now arrest A plotters display of guilty heads The ending of their quest
