ALL About BOND (007)

Fleming took to the sun

In a place that is heaven

To the island of beauty and fun

Where he wrote about that spy: 007
——

When the films were made

John Barry and his team knew the score

The memorable horn and wind serenade

Left us all wanting more and more
——–

It didn’t take EONs to get the party started

Sean Connery took to the lead role

Cinema goers and their cash departed

Creating a film fever that swept the globe
——-

From the doctor that always said ‘No’

To Ursula who shone like a dime

Who knew where the films would go

As Bond ‘wrestled with ‘the hand ‘ of crime
——-

007 gets wrapped up in a Russian triangle

The clerk loves him and her home

Kleb ‘points’ and dances to make Bond dangle

Then it’s time to do what they do in Rome
——-

Bond is faced with a man he can’t deny

Gold is his drug; his fix

Odd Job is strong; but he gets fried

Auric is sucked out; and into the mix

——-


And now the SPECTRE of games begin

This time Largo is bold and upfront

Bond with help ensures they don’t win

It required a very watery stunt

——–
Bond looks dead; but wait he’s reborn

He heads to Japan for an assist

When it’s the right time he’ll blow his horn

Forcing SPECTRE to cease and desist

——–
Are diamonds the forever jewel?

Bond soon learns what this means

Fighting Spectre is unusual and cruel

But 007 seems to get away clean
——

A new Bond does his serves majestic

He faces 12 angels of death

His time is fractious and hectic

As his beloved draws her last breath…

—–


The fans then asked for Moore

Roger wanted to Live & Let and Let Die

Mr Big is the enemy for sure

As Kanaga explodes into pieces of a pie

——-
Gold is back on the scene

A Gun with nuggets that kill

The mirrors reflect a face to be gleamed

Scaramanga ends up paying his bill

——
Will Bond fall for the Russian charm?

Spies are not the type to trust

They work well; she means no harm

Let’s hope the mission isn’t a bust

—–
Fly Bond to the moon…

No time to play with the stars

007 plans Drax’s end; and soon

As Jaws and Dolly don’t make the bar


Bond only has Eyes; for You

Gogol has plans in mind as well

The ATAC system ensures a right to-do

The time has come to ring the bell

——-
You can’t go wrong with eight legs

It’s not the same however for 007

A circus; a bomb; what question does it beg

Answer; they want to blow you up to heaven


The Duran Duran theme put us on the sill

Moore’s last outing; as slick as oil

Standing tall – looking at a View to a Kill

Another device is set explode and boil


Tim Dalton likes Living in the Daylight

Koskov likes to trick and deceive

Pushkin and Whitaker will perish tonight

As 007 has a few ’Q’ tricks up his sleeve


Gladys Knight has a License and will

Bond has revenge for Lieter in mind

Become a hitman – a contract to kill

Sanchez is sought out – Bond makes the find

——–

A new Bond enters the fray

Golden Eye is his first real test

Pierce as 007 fights for England without delay

Trevelyan ensures Bond works at his best

——-
Now Tomorrow arrives on time

Bond and Wai Lin fight for mankind

Carver has a story; it’s a tight deadline

The British fleet leave Carver going blind


Cheryl says the World is Not Enough

Reynard believes this to be true

007 has get a little rough

With time running out & so much to do


Two faces belong to one man

The General’s dead son reappears

Bond doesn’t know the true global plan

But makes sure they end up in tears

——

Craig takes on the Royal reins

Gambling on poking the bear

Le Chiffre takes all of the pain

Mr. White is the man to fear

—–
There’s no time for Solace

In any Quantum of time

Greene is the one hurling malice

And now his life walks out of line


Bond returns to his Skyfall

Silva takes him back to the start

M comes up short; not that tall

007 aims with an axe to the heart

——
The reveal shows SPECTRE; ESB

The author of Bonds pain

A final fight occurs over the sea

Will we get to see ‘that cat’ ever again?

—-
The 25th episode is out now

What will Bond have to face?

Book your tickets if you’re allowed

Sit back, relax and enjoy the race…
