5,7,5 – 365 6th November 2015
A haiku and a diary entry, everyday for a year.
There are spent rockets on the street this morning, launched from people’s back gardens yesterday to celebrate the failure of The Gunpowder Plot. I read Guy Fawkes’s Wikipedia entry this morning, which details how he was fortunate enough to avoid the very worst aspects of his final sentence, a fate worse than but not excluding death.
 

Remember the Fifth

Rockets, sparklers, smoke, fire

And Guy’s grizzly end
