The explosive escape leaves ESB scarred 

To London to take the program off-line

Max is caught; then falls through the bars

Swann is re-captured, and is anything but fine

The MI6 building is ready to blow

One last stunt from Ernst Stavro Blofeld

Bond has a three minute choice – where does he go?

Maybe it’s time reign on him ; some 007 hell

ESB watches with glee from the air;

Bond pilots a boat and take a bulls-eye shot

His nemesis is down; trapped in M’s lair…
