Grain of salt people - take it with a grain of salt.
[Disclaimer: This poem is about Nobody and Nothing, in Nowhere]

Mr. and Mrs. Anonymous lived in Nowhere Indiana.

They had two children: Somebody and Nobody,
Who had two cousins: Anybody and Everybody.
Anybody had a girlfriend named Anything.
Somebody had a girlfriend named Someone,
whose friend was Something.

Someone had a mother named Nothing,
whose husband was Yourself,
whose cousins were ... Everything and Everyone.

Well, it so happens that Somebody
kept telling Everybody whenever Anybody
would do Anything.

Everybody kept patiently listening,
but Someone finally got fed up and told

Everybody learned things about Somebody.

And, finally, Somebody had Nowhere to hide.

After all, Nobody is to blame for Someone's actions,
but Yourself.

Remember: Everyone should always try to do Something for Somebody.

Where Everything will end up... is Anybody's guess.

[Repeat Disclaimer: This poem is about Nobody and Nothing, in Nowhere]
