Everybody, Somebody, Anybody and Nobody | Letter

There were four groups in Washington, D.C. named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody and Nobody. There was an important job to be done and everybody was sure that Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did. Somebody got angry about that because it was Everybody’s job. Everybody thought that Anybody could do it. But Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn’t do it. It ended up that Everbody blamed Somebody and Nobody did what Anybody could have.
