The Killing Licence

Glady Knight’s mellow tones set the scene

Felix Leiter is in love – in a bubble

His wife waiting to marry; yes very keen

But capturing Sanchez; can only mean trouble

So much for  honeymoon time

Leiter is maimed, Della is no more

Their status play’s on Bond’s mind

Now it’s time to investigate this drug lord

Krest uses the marina to hide

Sanchez has his white powder to sell

M reassigns 007; he reacts with his pride

Bond leaves MI6; it’s time to ring the bell

On his own and revenge is the food

Krest is the weak link

So much to do and no time to brood

Bouvier makes two; they meet for a drink

Sanchez is the target-but is missed

Bond tries to join the assassin game

Many men die;adding more to the list

Bond puts Krest in ‘the frame’

Sanchez takes Bond in

Lupe shows him a good time 

Cocaine dissolved in petroleum

Sanchez uses a cult as a sign

Bouvier supports Bond as a team

The cocaine plant must be destroyed

A fire is a good idea it seems

Dario gets a bullet that Bouvier deploys…

Sanchex flees with his trucks

Another fire puts pay to him

Bond survives; the 007 luck

As the final outing for Dalton, Mr Tim

The ‘Eyes’ have it…

The helicopter scene strikes again

Is Blofeld really still alive?

They disturbed  his memory; his pain

Of the night his wife, Tracy; died

Put that behind you Bond

The ATAC system is the new goal

Facing the new task; not to abscond

The chase will make you whole

Across the Med to Greece we go

Russia is also on the move

Gogol is after the prize he can show

There’s always no time to lose

A new trail leeds to the hitman

Spain is now the location

The hitman get hit; its poetry in motion

Melina and Bond have a new vocation

Italy with Ferrara; now takes centre stage

Chasing down the ‘Dove’

Escaping death is on the next page

Will Bibi Dahl and Bond fall in love?

A complex web is being to weave

Kristatos, Columbo, Locque enter the mix

Who is who, who is it to deceive?

Is this something 007 can fix?

Who is really behind the plot?

The old enemy rises; yes the KGB

Locque’s car takes a dive; that’s his lot

Bond finds ATAC; at the bottom of the sea

Columbo, Melina and Bond make a final bid

See off Kriegler and Kristatos to boot

Gogol misses out on lifting the lid

Of ATAC’s secrets and it’s loot…
