Kickass, the doorstop dog, says that dogs think that such weather elements as fog are useful as people try to narrow up their worlds so they cannot see their “so-called” leaders make asses of themselves, and of the people, before the entire world.

As Carl Sandburg put it:

The fog comes

On little cat feet.

It sits looking

Over harbor and city

On silent haunches

And then moves on.

Kickass, trying not to be offended by that “cat feet” reference, would—with no apology whatsoever, add to Carl’s poem:

And when the fog goes

On its big dog paws

It takes the riff-raff

And returns decency to laws.
