Who Was That Masked Man?

Remember remember the fifth of November
Gunpowder, treason and plot.
I see no reason why gunpowder, treason
Should ever be forgot
But follow the calendar twenty-score years
And if you hold shy lady irony dear
Then you'll laugh as the free wear the mask of a man
Who would murder so king and the Pope should hold hands
Liberty is but a sweet breath of air
Tyranny's rule has been man's lot to share
Back when Rome fell, famine savaged the land
A thousand dark years strangled woman and man
As radicals cry, Equal Outcome, We need it
Know the past well, or you're doomed to repeat it
