Games, Then and Now

written by: Paul Anthony Obey



A healthy new craze,
Anyone can aspire,
Friends with high praise,
And a will to aim higher,

Roll the dice of life’s game,
Walking streets to inspire,
Collect property, no shame,
Until time come to retire,

Downward trend too often,
Acting out anywhere,
Watch your footing, a precaution,
For this childish fanfare.

The author, Paul Anthony Obey, born in 1970, is working class, brought up in a working class family and has raised a working class family. Married to a proud New Zealander, Nicola, they live in the North West of England and share 4 children; Ryan, Hayley, Bethany and Seth, one of each from both.

Paul has worked within the Social Housing environment for all his adult life in one guise or another, but has recently decided to write full time to share a view and hopefully inspire reaction in others to take another look at life, beyond the confines of self, question the generally accepted truth and make the World a better place for everyone. One step at a time!

My work is dedicated to all of those who believe in what I am trying to do and to some of those who don’t yet get it.
