Fireworks Galore!

Remember, remember the fifth of NovemberGunpowder, treason and plot.

I see no reason, why gunpowder treason

Should ever be forgot.
Guy FawkesGuy Fawkes, guy, t’was his intent

To blow up king and parliament.

Three score barrels were laid below

To prove old England’s overthrow.
By God’s mercy he was catch’d

With a darkened lantern and burning match.

So, holler boys, holler boys, Let the bells ring.

Holler boys, holler boys, God save the king.

And what shall we do with him?

Burn him!

Complex Halloween

  

Spooky times are upon us. Can you write some complex sentences based on the theme of Halloween?
Here are mine:

Even though the room smelt like an Apothecary’s shop, the black cat seemed immune to the toxic smells around him.
