Once upon a time, there were four people, their names were
Everybody, Somebody, Nobody and Anybody.

Whenever there was an important job to be done
Everybody was sure that somebody would do it.

Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it.
When Nobody did it, Everybody got angry,

because it was everybody’s job.
Everybody thought that somebody would do it,
but nobody would do it. 

So subsequently Everbody blamed Somebody
when Nobody did what Anybody could
have done in the first place.
