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…

New Year Wishe(s)

So I guess it’s time to wish

The new year I hope will spark

New beginnings, a new healthy dish

Hard work maybe, with a little walk in the park
Bright, positive hopes 

Coupled with realistic plans

No flight, keep the fight to cope

Resist the temptation for  the’beer cans’ 
Upward, onward, hoisted on the expectant breeze 

2017 is our story yet to be written 

Delivery of your goal is yours to seize 

We reach our targets as we are smitten
Hooked onto the unexpected 

Galvanise all of our effort and time

Never let our family, role,survival be neglected 

Live our lives, day by day as a rhyme…

Pirates Menu

 

For all the children and adults alike with a fascination for Pirates, this is something I came across when researching what Pirates do when they think about food. I can’t prove it but this is what I think they do???… Read for yourself, it won’t take long, think of it as reading, the words to a song..(the utter randomness of words)

 

PIRATE MENU MADNESS…
Patch of a pirate, the pirate wears a patch
Snatch like you grab, grab like you snatch
Matches that light,light those matches
To catch a fish, a fish catches
A batch of bones,bones in a batch
Hatch that plan, plan not to fall down that hatch
Latch that door, the door has a latch
Attach those braids, braids need to be attached
Stash that gold, the gold must be stashed
Bash that steak, the steak must be bashed
Flash that lash, the eyelash must be flashed
Slash that sword, the sword makes a slash
Mash that potato, make potato mash
Add corned beef, to make corned beef hash
Use corned beef hash, to get rid of that rash
Get rid of the rash, but then you grow a tash
This is a great menu for pirates on the seas
Will ensure success or bring you to your knees!
Any questions? Let me know  and I will do my best to answer them! (Captain Nelson!)
