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

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

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

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…
