Mr. Nobody by Anonymous 

 

I know a funny little man, 

    As quiet as a mouse, 

Who does the mischief that is done 

    In everybody’s house! 

There’s no one ever sees his face, 

    And yet we all agree 

That every plate we break was cracked 

    By Mr. Nobody. 

 

’Tis he who always tears our books, 

    Who leaves the door ajar, 

He pulls the buttons from our shirts, 

    And scatters pines afar; 

That squeaking door will always squeak, 

    For prithee, don’t 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?

There’s no 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.

In Art, we are learning about Op Art: optical illusions created by using shape, colour and patterns to make an image look like it is moving! We have been developing our skills by studying Victor Varsarely, a French artist who is famous for creating breath-taking optical illusions.
