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

Yes, Your Majesty

A new Bond stands centre stage

He is anything but Lazy

Following Flemings every page

The Swiss scenery might leave you hazy

It’s Blofeld, now the Telly (aka Kojak)

The goal; global food poverty

No fear; Bond has a Columbo Mac

Just one last question is the key

Bond meets and saves the fallen lady

He survives his usual scrapes

Her father worries about his baby

Bond agrees to be her date

Draco is a link to finding ESB

Bond is in love taking his breath

12 women seem as happy as can be

Bond learns; they are the ‘angels of death’

A proposal of marriage follows

Amidst the ever impending doom

Something genuine; never hollow

You can feel ending coming soon

A snowy backdrop is left behind

Bond and wife escape and are free

The last twist of the knife,  Bond did find

It’s time for perdition for the lovely Tracy…

The Bond Poetic – Episode 1.5 ‘Two Lives for Mr. Bond’

Episode 5 in the Poetic spy thriller franchise sees Bond die twice? or Live twice?…either way it makes an enthralling watch (or listen) as you are taken through ‘ Two Lives for Mr. Bond’…

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

Two Lives for Mr Bond…

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

As the ninjas await their final finale

A mass interdiction gets under way

Bond and his team attack from all around

Spectre’s leader has one last thing to say

‘I’m off’, and is nowhere to be found…

The Bond Poetic – Episode 1.4 ‘ Thunder & Balls’

The fourth episode in the Poetic series sees 007 take to new ‘depths’ to save the world once again in 1965…

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

Thunder and Balls

The years roll on and Bond is still alive

‘Awake Mr Bond’ to the Thunderball

The year is set; its now 1965

Will James answer the call?

MI6’s nemesis remains alert

Spectre have stolen the atomic prize

No time for Bond to ‘chase the skirt’

Focus now: on Spectre’s timely demise

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…
