To the Moon (and Back?)

On land, sea and now into the skies

Fleming took us towards the stars

Moore returns, there’s no surprise

With a shaken Martini at the bar

This time space is the game

That stolen NASA shuttle rocket

Bond takes a dive out of a plane

Picking a parachute out of a pocket

Without delay Bond faces Drax

The Centrifuge chamber becomes the test

At over 4G’s will bond collapse?

Goodhead to the rescue; doing her best

A tiny vial is the all important key

Drax’s plan is to use a gas

Rio de Janeiro is the place to flee

Bond better catch up – fast!

Jaws steps into the fray

A cable car fight ensues

Goodhead is caught;what a day

007 lives on; that’s the news

The amazon provides a secret

A rare toxin from a rare plant

Jaws seizes Bond; their plan is set 

Drax is a giant; Bond is the ant

The Moonrakers launch into space

Bond and Goodhead miss the heat

Finally they learn his plan; face to face

It’s another madman they’ll have to defeat

Obliterate all human life

Utilise the genetic clones

A ‘master race’ free from strife

Something Bond could not condone

Jaws and Dolly do not measure up

An about turn helps the good side

Drax meets an end, short and abrupt

As Bond and Goodhead take a ‘space ride’…

The Bond Poetic – Episode 1.10 ‘Me; Loving a Spy?’

Moore is back as 007 as he teams up with his arch enemy the Russian KGB to over throw another megalomaniac who wants to build an underwater world and destroy the one everyone else lives on…(this films feature the beautiful theme song – ‘Nobody Does it Better’ by Carly Simon)

Me; Loving a Spy?

The underwater theme returns

Submarine technology is now the aim

Bond shows his due concern

Evading capture is never twice the same

Anya is Russia’s female spy

The plans avail themselves in Egypt

Jaws shows his teeth;someone may die

And end up in an ancient crypt?

Collaboration is now the new plan

Jaws still has other ideas

Bond saves Anya from the teeth of a can

Then he starts that ‘whispering’ in her ears

The trail leads to the water

Now Stromberg comes into view

The Lotus fires Naomi to a slaughter

The enemy is hit by the new ‘good two’

They investigate  the Atlantis base

Jaws is there to protect

A nuclear threat is there to be faced

The danger is clear to detect

Atlantis is the goal to destroy

Anya needs to be saved

Jaws plays with the sharks like a toy

Bond sends Stromberg to his grave…

Golden Armour

Moore moves onto to the ‘asia scene’

 The Solex Agitator is now the prize

007 must remain trim and lean

To avoid his possible demise

Power and energy are in short supply

Nations seek answers in the sun

Scaramanga has ideas to deny

Buy using his unique ‘Golden Gun’

Bond tracks the mistress, Anders

That bullet with 007 etched on

In the casino; Bond doesn’t flounder

At the hotel, Anders knows the game is on

Hai Fat is tricked by 007

Scaramanga gets there first

Bond escapes death;maybe heaven?

A Golden Bullet send’s Fat home, in a hearse

The Solex is now in play

Goodnight supports the team

Scaramanga flees; flying away

In the boot, she is nowhere to be seen

The stage is set for the highest bid

Scaramanga’s end game for cash

It’s the right time to lift the lid

With blaze from a bullet with a flash

Nick Nack leads Bond into the maze

Reflecting Bond’s hopes and fears

Triumph for 007;ending Scaramnga’s days

Then he celebrates; whispering in Goodnight’s ears…

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’…

When smuggling tastes better than honey

Tiffany prefers to head to the bank

To Vegas then; they head there next

Are diamonds really real?

Nobody seems to know

Q, M, Leiter made the deal

Now it’s time for the ‘real’ show

Tiffany should have assisted Bond

In fear she hands the prize on

Fleeing is the same as to abscond

But realises her error must be undone

In Whyte’s house, Bond sees double

No; not Wint and Kidd

Bond is captured and put in a bubble

And then they close the lid

007 evades a certain death

He gets help from an old enemy

At Blofled’s lab they learn the depth

Of his Diamond laser satellite beam

Nuclear sites reduced to rubble

Will the nations bow down to comply?

Or will Bond’s team; get them out of trouble?

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

To escape from his latest tight spot

Finally Q delivers Bond tech in style

Remaining cool; never hot

Bond raises the stakes and flies

Into the Caribbean delights

Into the den of Mr Largo

$100 million is in his sights

Has Bond immunity against Ms Domino?

The world is on the brink

That ransom has to be paid

They need a ‘boat’ that won’t sink

Underwater is where the battle will be played

In widescreen view you did see

Leiter support the mercurial Bond

Fleming’s heroes fight the enemy

No time for fear or to abscond

A first time aquatic leads the way

Largo knows the waters below

The Bond/Leiter combo manages to hold sway

Our enemy gets a hit and a blow

Miami is the final location

On board Domino gets her sweet payback

Largo retires on a permanent vacation

There’s no need to continue the attack

Into the arms of Bond does she fall?

M, surely would not approve

Maybe this once for saving the Thunderball

You can’t stop 007 when he’s in the groove…
