If the world was like the British Secret Service
And all the nice guys were James Bond
And all the bad guys had cats:
There would definitely be Bond girls.

Good girls, dead girls
Shoot-you-in-the-head girls
Hiding-in-the-bed girls
While-making-out-with-Bond girls

Other-secret-agents girls
Super-psycho-villain girls
Some-random-at-a-bar girls
Not-wearing-enough-clothes girl

But then there’s a forgotten girl
An always being used girl
Bond never looks twice girl
Always there to help girl

Cheated by the hot girls
Laughed at ‘cause she’s a nice girl
Forgotten as a Bond girl
But an always there for Bond girl

So all you silly Bond boys
Put down your silly shooting toys
Stop kissing the villain-girl
And have a drink with the forgotten Bond girl

I'm a huge fan of the entire James Bond franchise, and Moneypenny was always my favorite underrated Bond girl.

Oh my goodness this is so great. I love Moneypenny too, I respect her so much because despite all of Bond's suave ways she still keeps a good head on her shoulders and isn't afraid to tell him no. I feel like that makes Bond respect her a lot as well, which is part of the reason I really love their relationship (I don't necessarily ship them, though I do love their dynamic). She's one of the few people he can rely on (I mean she didn't mean to shoot him after all) and their banter is awesome. Anyway I've begun ranting now, but your poem is really great.
