Two Lives for Mr Bond…
Who says nothing lasts forever
Many have given it a try
Death can give you a lever
The only way to freedom, is to die
Bond does just that
What is the hell is going on?
007 is human, not that ‘cat’
Oh wait, I’m afraid it’s just a con
In ‘67 the scene is now set
Two superpowers pitched against the other
What are the answers they will get?
Is Spectre the one behind all the bother?
In Japan Bond seeks to learn more
With the help from an unusual source
Someone is paying Spectre for sure
Now it’s time separate; via an explosive divorce
Looking to the skies two rockets disappear
One from the USSR and from the USA
The countries then realise their worst fears
They leave it to Bond; to save the day
Tiger bears his friendly claws
To benefit the side of the good
Plotting to inject a fatal flaw
Under Spectre’s rocket hood
Bond ducks and dives, saving his skin
Osato and Brandt may yet pay the price
Bonds escapes with a win
Brandt is fed to the piranhas; nice..
Tanaka assists Bond to find the secret base
There he finally meets the infamous E.S.B.
That ‘Cat’ is there just in case
As the ninjas await their final finale
A mass interdiction gets under way
Bond and his team attack from all around
Spectre’s leader has one last thing to say
‘I’m off’, and is nowhere to be found…
