Because of the Gunpowder Plot,
But few people know much about him:
An anarchist man he was not.
It’s true he was part of the party
That tried to assassinate James,
But Guy was a Cath’lic extremist.
Restoring the Church was his aim.
That might have meant total dominion
Or naught but a tolerant king.
Whatever he wanted, I’m certain
That anarchy wasn’t his thing.
