Full poem:

Remember remember the fifth of November
Gunpowder, treason and plot.
I see no reason why gunpowder, treason
Should ever be forgot...

Oh, V for Vendetta, I've got to watch that one again.
The part where Hugo Weaving does his monologue only based on words beginning with the letter V is rhetorically just awesome.
