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 pine afar;

That squeaking door will always squeak,

For, prithee, don't you see,

We leave the oiling to be done

By Mr. Nobody

The finger marked upon the door

By none of us are made;

We never leave the blind 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.

synopsis

setting
Setting:

The poem is set in a house and the area around the house. The persona talks about the situation in the house and things happening in it. Things get broken, misplaced and thrown around by an unseen person. Besides that, he also messes up the house and dirties the place.

themes
Themes:

The main theme in this poem is family life which is full of mischievousness from the children. It is normal for a family to have someone who does mischievousness but will not admit it. In a family, we might take things done by other people for granted. We should appreciate the work done by other people. We should allocate work clearly and be responsible for our own actions. Another theme is respect for every member of the family. Cultivate good habits for everyone's sake and comfort. 

moral values
Moral Values:
  • We must work together to look after the family home.
  • We should have respect for other people's properties.
  • We must value and appreciate the things at home.
  • We must be willing to admit our mistakes and carelessness. 
  • We must not be careless when using our own things or other people's possessions.
