And what shall we do with him? Burn him…

Guy Fawkes, the only man to ever enter parliament with honest intentions.  I wonder what he would think of our world today?  I suspect he would find there was not enough gun powder to do it justice.
Remember, remember the Fifth of November,
The Gunpowder Treason and Plot,
I know 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.
Holla boys, Holla boys, let the bells ring.
Holloa boys, holloa boys, God save the King
And what should we do with him? Burn him!
– Seamus
