The Killing Licence

Glady Knight’s mellow tones set the scene

Felix Leiter is in love – in a bubble

His wife waiting to marry; yes very keen

But capturing Sanchez; can only mean trouble

So much for  honeymoon time

Leiter is maimed, Della is no more

Their status play’s on Bond’s mind

Now it’s time to investigate this drug lord

Krest uses the marina to hide

Sanchez has his white powder to sell

M reassigns 007; he reacts with his pride

Bond leaves MI6; it’s time to ring the bell

On his own and revenge is the food

Krest is the weak link

So much to do and no time to brood

Bouvier makes two; they meet for a drink

Sanchez is the target-but is missed

Bond tries to join the assassin game

Many men die;adding more to the list

Bond puts Krest in ‘the frame’

Sanchez takes Bond in

Lupe shows him a good time 

Cocaine dissolved in petroleum

Sanchez uses a cult as a sign

Bouvier supports Bond as a team

The cocaine plant must be destroyed

A fire is a good idea it seems

Dario gets a bullet that Bouvier deploys…

Sanchex flees with his trucks

Another fire puts pay to him

Bond survives; the 007 luck

As the final outing for Dalton, Mr Tim
