The SPECTRE of Defeat…

Bond consumed with M’s death doesn’t want to fall

The answer could lie in Mexico

We hope the ‘writing is not on his wall’

Without approval that is where Bond goes

The new M, cuts Bonds ties

Mallory has his own fights to win

A sinister intelligence plot emerges – the nine eyes

Max Denbigh is no saint – but likes to sin

Sciarra’s wife is the target to aim for

Bond has the Octopus engraved ring

At the secret meeting Bond walks through the door

A name from the past is heard – kill the ‘Pale King’

Hinx replaces Sciarra as the new man

He chases Bond in his DB10

The next stop needs a new plan

007 is on the run again

The Pale King is ‘Mr White’

In Austria there is a chill in the air

A gun and thallium means it’s over for him – good night

His daughter’s life are his final fears

Search for L’ Americain Bond is told

Dr Swann comes into view

Can 007 keep his promise to be bold?

To protect her with every bone and sinew?

Q meets Bond with info from the past

L’Chiffre, Greene, Silva were all the face

How much further will his life last?

The past is the present for Bond to embrace

In Tangier Swann fights through a wall of pain

Her father has evidence of Spectre’s central home

Yes they are here and on the Saharan plain

Its the next stop for 007 to roam

Hinx meets up to test Bond’s devotion

The train fight is a touch of first class

Hinx is ejected- poetry in motion

Bond settles for a martini – in a glass

Tangier is next on the list

The desert is calling 007 and Swann

A classic 1947 RollsRoyce appears from the mist

Taking them both the meet ‘the one’

Oberhauser is steps into the fray

Boasts about his control over Nine Eyes

Bond just about lives another day

Swann saves him from being fried

Yes Oberhauser is really ESB

Bond’s ‘brother’ from a young age

He died once to set himself free

SPECTRE is the platform – yes his very own stage

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

Swann is saved;its Bond’s turn to stir the pot

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…

The Bond Poetic – Episode 1.23 – ‘Falling from the Sky’

Daniel Craig as 007 stars in the biggest grossing Bond movie ever – over $1billion in sales and its also my personal favourite of the last two decades (plus Goldfinger). The storyline still links together from the previous two films (loosely) and another spike form M’s past comes back to haunt MI6 is spectacular fashion

Falling from the Sky 

Bond returns to his own personal start

Once again he bravely answers the call

Moneypenny stays outside the train cart

And ‘shoots’ into the Sky as it falls

A ‘00’ is down and out

For Patrice; Bond seeks due revenge

On a train, bike and roundabout

Moneypenny pushes Bond over the ‘ledge’

Now the cyber attacks begin

M is targeted for all to see

Bond returns to help MI6 win

The mastermind; who could it be?

For now Bond tracks Patrice

The hired gun; the killer

In Shanghai things do not end up neat

With a fight that became a thriller

Patrice parts ways with life

In Macau Bond gambles on his next move

Severine hopes Bond knows how to use a knife

On that island with no time to lose

Bond’s radio comes into its own

Silva is captured; now taken away

MI6’s HQ is now on loan

Silva waited to have his day

MI6 is hacked by stealth

The evil plan starts to take shape

What happened next was not good for M’s health

Bond to the rescue -this time without his cape

It’s time to leave the breadcrumbs as a trail

Silva can’t resist eating them up

M, Mallory and Q set the bail

A fiery mood is ready to be served in a cup

Back to his birthright place

Skyfall is now set alight

How much more can Bond take

As he follows Silva deep into the night

At the cemetery where his parents lay

M, injured makes her final call

Silva is ‘axed’ from the ensuing play

Bond says a ‘farewell’ to his very own Skyfall…
