The Bond Poetic – Episode 1.20 – ‘Another Day to Die’

This was Pierce Brosnan’s last outing as Bond – This time he is challenged to recognised a face from the past that has irrevocably changed – his enemy has changed and is supported by Jinx the CIA helper/agent who has her own agenda until they joins forces to overthrow the bad side…This time the theme tune to this film is sung by none other than Madonna (who has a small cameo role in the film!)

All episodes of the Bond Poetic are available as a Podcast (via Anchor/Spotify) and available on other podcast platforms like Apple and Google.)

Another Day to die…

Off to the to the North Bond goes

Diamonds are the cash for arms

Bond captured; won’t tell what he knows

The General means to do him serious harm

The death of the general’s son

Leads to tourture for over a year

Bonds scars cannot be undone

But finds being traded a price far too dear

Bond is convinced there is a mole

Someone working for both sides

Jinx helps Bond dig a hole

In Cuba is where Zao resides

They stumble on those diamonds again

Conflict ones on the the scene

The gene therapy room, no longer remains

As Zao and his cronies get away clean

So who is Gustav Graves?

A man of more than one face?

The fencing fight leaves Bond with a close shave

And Mr. Graves with a little ‘egg’ on his face

Miranda Frost joins the team

She represents the ice in the land they head for

In the palace where Icarus shines a light like a beam

Leaves Bond to rescue Jinx and get out of that door

And now the face of the ‘Moon’ is revealed

Graves is the general’s ‘dead’ son

Bond admits the scheme was exquisitely concealed 

Now he and Jinx must fire their gun

The inside man is a woman

Frost proving she is cold as ice

Straight faced and dispassionate; the true deadpan

Now Jinx is trapped and could pay the price

Bond escapes and races to the rescue

Icarus targets the ice that Graves did erect

Jinx on the frozen edge – her body almost blue

Bonds saves her from a watery death; perfect

The game is nearly done

Graves turns Icarus on the DMZ

Jinx and Bond plan to turn off Graves ‘sun’

Now it’s time to use Plan B

A final flight and fight begins

Jinx melts Frost’s heart with a sword

Bond ‘parachutes’ Graves into the engine 

Those ‘diamonds’ become their reward…
