Plotting the Downfall

written by: Paul Anthony Obey



It’s not wrong to remove the incompetent and weak,
Or form legion to plan safe departure,
A history littered with injustice for the old and the meek,
The destination of the ultimate adventure,

Easier now than ever, with technological tools,
No backstabbing is literally required,
Scattered whispers of kings who then became fools,
Given no option, before permanently retired,

For the brazen, brave soldiers, much reward awaits,
Treat their sickness of mind with no passion,
Repeating the past, with the help of your mates,
Break the world, like it’s going out of fashion,

Rise, you patriotic assassins, with a knowing wry smile,
suppress all vindictive illusion so deep,
For the good will excel, tell yourself all the while,
Win the right to be better, to sleep.

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.
