They want us to remember

The fifth day of November

Gunpowder treason and plot

But they neglect to mention

Injustice and oppression

In which tempers grew so hot

Those who lit torches beneath

Ones they branded witches' feet

All sense of justice forgot

Trampling on the weak and poor

Killing Catholics and more

In everything there was rot

So when fire lights the night sky

And you glance up walking by

Perhaps consider your lot

Are you really so unlike

The Guy who they burn and strike

Stare blind at fireworks do not
