Let me Live!
It was in June 1973
A new ‘ Bond’ came to the fore
No more Sean Connery
Hello & welcome to Mr Roger Moore
No more global spectre games
Local issues are now the fight
Drugs are the target; the aim
007 meets a new ‘dark knight’
He is big; the ruler of San Monique
He uses ‘magic’ to threaten and scare
His methods are indeed unique
Bond may have something new to fear
The UN is the centre of attention
Kanaga ‘Whispers’ into the big apple too;
Bond comes close to his perdition
He now knows what he needs to do
What is the future for 007?
What does the Tarot card say?
Will it be hell or heaven?
Will he find out without delay?
Who is this mysterious Solitaire?
The cards tell a different story
Rosie’s life is now ashes, in the air
Mr Big, moves on; in search of glory
Two faces become one
Mr Big and Kanaga are the same
The ‘white powder’ must be undone
We now know who to blame
Solitaire loses her gifts & charm
Samedi is called to make sacrifice
Bond skips the crocs ; they do him no harm
Who says crocodiles can’t be nice
Samedi meets his doom
In a ‘coffin’ of poisonous snakes
Kanaga’s gassed and fills the room
His remains are cleared up with a rake
Leiter sorts out the lovebirds
The last train by the CIA host
When nothing could be more absurd;
Then Samedi returning; as the ‘laughing ghost’…
