    I am looking for a poem that my husband says Edgar Guest wrote. One of the verses is Don't do this, Don't do that. Don't Annoy or Tease the Cat.

Best Poem of Edgar Albert Guest

See It Through

When you're up against a trouble,
Meet it squarely, face to face;
Lift your chin and set your shoulders,
Plant your feet and take a brace.

If the worst is bound to happen,
Spite of all that you can do,
Running from it will not save you,
See it ...
