Edgar Albert Guest (1881-1959) was a prolific and popular poet who wrote over 11,000 poems, was syndicated in over 300 newspapers and even had his own radio and TV show. You can read more of his uplifting and feel-good poetry at his Poetry Foundation page.

For those keen-eyed readers out there, you’ll notice that this isn’t the first appearance of my ‘Running Man’. His road to transformation began in a comic I did nearly two years ago featuring a quote by Stephen Fry.
