GUEST,Visitor Lyr Req: a poem called 'Mr. Nobody' (33) RE: Lyr Req: a poem called 'Mr. Nobody' 14 Jan 07


I came across this 99 posting about Kris asking for the author of the poem "Mr. Nobody". The author is Anon - anonymous, and I just found it on this website if you would like to check it out. Anon

Mr Nobody

I know a funny little man,
As quiet as a mouse,
Who does the mischief that is done
In everybodyís house!
Thereís no one ever sees his face,
And yet we all agree
That every plate we break was cracked
By Mr Nobody.

íTis he who always tears our 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, donít you see,
We leave the oiling to be done
By Mr Nobody.

He puts damp wood upon the fire,
That kettles cannot boil;
His are the feet that bring in mud,
And all the carpets soil.
The papers always are mislaid,
Who had them last but he?
Thereís not one tosses them about
But Mr Nobody.

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 see
Are not our boots; they all belong
To Mr Nobody.
