Last Of The Hard Men

You are very difficult to find,
More difficult to kill.
How many shots did you take?
Tequila or bullets?
Please, don’t be flippant.
There is a great deal at stake.
Pray tell.
The consensus of opinion
Says you are the man for….
It’s irrelevant.
We need this man eliminated.
You mean murdered.
You don’t mince words,
I like that.
The gleam in his eye
As a former spy
Was cold;
His smile belated.
He is ex KGB
Now lovingly known as FSB.
As if that mattered.


He works at the Russian embassy,

Connected deep into British industry.

A threat to national security.

Is there any more?

Not really.

Now go.

That’s all you need to know.
