Herald, the Slumdog King of all of Bollywood,
With a back catalogue, stretching as long as my arm,
Mainstream at home, but not by me, that’s understood,
Fawned over for the good looks and all that charm,
Not renowned in the West but all over the telly,
Paraded as a King of all the shows,
Pretty peerless it seems from here to New Delhi,
Awards burden like the days of those old pros,
Portrayed in his World as a lover and a fighter,
I’m ashamed I know so little of his works,
It’s a crime we don’t know more despite a,
Wealth of knowledge to be found, if we cared.
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.
