Remember, Remember the 5th of November

Remember, Remember the 5th of November
Gunpowder, treason and plot.
I see no reason why the gunpowder treason
should ever be forgot.

Internal rhyme and rhyme every two lines... English poetry is very beautiful, if only to jio za bo like V in V for Vendetta... He got Natalie Portman! How powderful is that!

But there's another reason why it's interesting...5th of November is ORD day!
Haha sorry to all those ppl reading my blog who ORD later than that...

V for Vendetta uncannily reminds me of Singapore... black bagging political activists... an atmosphere of fear of terrorist attack... tweaking and manipulation of the lives of "less important" citizens... the very saddening thing is its depiction of the moral stagnation within the church of England, and the depiction of religion as an excuse for extremism... hope that never applies to Singapore...
