Nobody, Everybody, Somebody, Anybody

These four heads of Nobody, Everybody, Somebody and Anybody, forms a fifth head called a Busybody. The Busybody is always anxious after something about Somebody. He’ll keep company with Anybody to find out Everybody’s business; and is only at a loss when this head stops its pursuit, and Nobody will give him an answer. Suspicion begets the morning whisper, gossips circulates it as a secret, open-mouthed Wonder gives Credulity credit for it, and Self-Interest authenticates that, as Anybody may be set to work by Somebody, Everybody’s alarmed at it, and, at last, there is Nobody knows anything at all of the matter. From these four heads people purchase lottery tickets, in-spite of the fact that odds are very much against them; but Hope flatters them, Fancy makes them believe, and Expectation observes, that the twenty five thousand dollars prizes must come to Somebody!
