<p>MR NOBODYBY ANONYMOUSI know a funny little man, As quiet as a mouse,Who does the mischief that is done In everybodys house!Theres no one ever sees his face, And yet we all agreeThat every plate we break was cracked By Mr. Nobody.</p> <p>Tis he who always tears out books, Who leaves the door ajar,He pulls the buttons from our shirts, And scatters pins afar;That squeaking door will always squeak, For prithee, dont you see,We leave the oiling to be done By Mr. Nobody.</p> <p>He puts damp wood upon the fire,That kettle cannot boil;His are the feet that bring in mud,And all the carpets soil.The papers are always mislaid,Who had them last but he?There's no one tosses them aboutBut Mr Nobody.</p> <p>The finger marks upon the door By none of us are made;We never leave the blinds unclosed, To let the curtains fade.The ink we never spill; the boots That lying round you seeAre not our boots,they all belong To Mr. Nobody.</p> <p>TYPE OF POEMA poem on life.</p> <p>SUBJECTBehaving badly and not owning up.</p> <p>TITLEA suitable title because the purpose is to blame nobody.
