If She Ruled The World

If She Ruled the World

written by: Paul Anthony Obey



Her corruption would manifest just as starkly as his,
Their reality as oppressive as ours,
Same old clichés stand as outdated analysis,
As we target progressive and readable memoirs,

Less testosterone a blessing, a lesson in calm,
Assured fairness is naturally a given,
Live by scripture, no drama and no great alarm,
Dreams of a utopian future still forbidden,

Do you believe in the spin or still blame history?
For the unkind assumption giving hope,
Suppressing the truth of an unenviable story,
The reality seeing us unable to cope,

Following similar rules but set in reverse,
Imprisoning the subversives of fact,
Tell a story of folly with lies so perverse,
But support of your Sisters remains intact.

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.
