The Bond Poetic Vol 3. Returns in: ” The Finger of Gold “

The third Bond Film still ranks in the memory for several reasons. The gold painted lady, the ‘ejector seat’ stunt and ‘that Jag’, then Bond on the table coming perilously close to becoming a soprano and not living to ‘sing that particular tale’.

At Christmas approaches I’m sure we’ll see the usual catalogue of Bond movies to remind how the whole ‘spy movie’ thing got started and seems here to stay.

It was now 1964

The world no longer on hold

007 faces a nemesis once more

A man hypnotised by Gold

—–

Into the fray Bond tracks his man

They know him  as ‘Goldfinger’

The DB5 speeds through Switzerland

No time to slow down, or to linger

——

Smuggling himself into that life

The Golf course is the venue

Odd Job ensures there is no strife

Then removes a head, that cannot be renewed

—–

A crafty plan is set in motion

Is Pussy Galore the key?

Bond has other ideas with her devotion

To change her mind to switch teams?

—–

Bond is caught in the lion’s den

The criminal fraternity are shrouded in smoke 

Goldfinger’s plan is not an ‘if’, but ‘when’

The men in that room perished by the choke

——

Strapped to a table about five feet high

Bond utters his final convincing words

Goldfinger responds ‘You’re supposed to die’

Bond’s luck is in; as his pitch is heard 

—–

But Galore’s planes are now in the air

Poisonous gases ready to deploy

A change of heart the soldiers it did spare

Denying Goldfinger his moment to enjoy

—–

With a plan B, Goldfinger changes tack

Leave Bond trapped with his Korean brick

Bond gives him a shock when he attacks

A sizzling finale did just the trick

—–

Leiter thinks the job is done

Auric has other schemes and ways 

On Galore’s plane Auric saw the sun

And that was the end of Goldfinger’s days…

The Wonder of Remembrance (Nov 11, 2020)

It started with a shooting

Sometime in 1914

Young men called into action

Some of them lied – still in their teens

The desire to protect ones family

The duty to overthrow oppression

The honour to defend ones country

The ability to start learning lessons

As the bombs have fallen

Over the last two great wars

The legacy of what remains

Can never ever be ignored

What are we trying to remember?

What is the benefit of this act?

Its to remember the lives and sacrifice

To remember; to survive we have to form a pact

We remember the freedom that their sacrifice gives

We remember the what they left behind

We offer our thanks from the bottom of our hearts

We hope this is what you have have seen – you can find

We know it is easy to forget

There are those times in life

When bravery and courage were aplenty

Selflessness and togetherness were rife

We tip our hats to all those men and women

Those who put themselves in arms way

This day belongs to all of you

As we celebrate your/our Remembrance Day…
