Was Nobody inspired by Emily Dickinson?

I am surprised that, given the popularity/notoriety of your cartoon, "Nobody", that somebody hasn't brought up the subject of Emily Dickinson's poem, "Nobody." Well, let me be the one. It goes like this:

I'm nobody. Who are you?

Are you nobody too?

Then there's a pair of us - don't tell!

They'd banish us you know!

How dreary to be somebody!

How public like a frog,

To tell one's name the livelong day

To some admiring bog!

Cheers to all.

Jean Russell
