Okay, yeah, yeah. I have Been Remiss Of Late in writing this blog, and although I can point out that sewing SHIELD patches on my sleeves for my Halloween costume and grading papers did keep me busy, the fact is I also simply had no ideas for what to write.
And thanks to Paddington Bear, I know about Guy Fawkes Day, which was yesterday, so:
The fifth of November,
The Gunpowder treason and plot;
I know of no reason
Why the Gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot!
Guy Fawkes and his companions
Did the scheme contrive,
To blow the King and Parliament
All up alive.
Threescore barrels, laid below,
To prove old England’s overthrow.
But, by God’s providence, him they catch,
With a dark lantern, lighting a match!
