Bonding With Bond

What man would welcome the bonds of mortgage,
Drown in a long drink of boredom each night? 
For celluloid loves we’d gladly forage,
Evil and despair we’d gallantly fight. 
Childhood dreams put in permanent storage,
Follow villains into cowardly flight. 
A life ordinary needs no courage, 
Unlike courting harm to put the world right. 

What woman would so crave stability,
She’d aspire to be a coupon maven,
Betroth herself to tame maternity, 
For a rut no makeup can enliven, 
Spurn the kiss of dapper virility, 
Pass each tinselled day ever more craven? 
A whole world resigned to mortality, 
Thus chases life with double-o-seven.

"The bonds of mortgage" - "put childhood dreams in permanent storage" - there is hope, Bernard. At a certain age, you get to shake those dreams out and resume them.
