Disorders & Deities

In late 2013, London-based Eyewear Publishing
will publish The Poet’s Search For God. This poem
will be included in that collection.

Disorders & Deities                                                                                       

by Tony Peyser

My autistic son who often
Is at a loss himself
Paused while taking a bath
And seemed to cross himself.

Did I misinterpret that
Hand gesture a smidgen
Or has Jeremy somehow found
A way to get religion?

His access to godlike things
Would have certain gaps.
My wife & I don’t attend services
And are devoutly lapsed.

But maybe some bit of belief
Sang to Jeremy like wishes
Perhaps the prestidigitation
Of those loaves into fishes.

The sight of an actual crucifix
Might be a bit too real for him:
He doesn’t drink wine but communion
Wafers might appeal to him.

Maybe this is something I imagined
Maybe it’s a serious phase
Or just proof that autism & the Lord
Work in mysterious ways.

MLK Memorial Inscription In DC Will Be Removed

“I was a drum major for justice, peace & righteousness”
Was a line of King’s that deviated
From the actual thing that he said. Critic have complained
It was paraphrased & abbreviated.

It’ll cost 900 grand to fix this --- without my having to do
Even a small amount of reportage
It appears when it comes to monuments that we’re facing
A severe fact-checker shortage.

Bob Hope’s Garage Sale

His old place in Toluca Lake was packed
And filled with all kinds of folks.
I bought an unused Bing Crosby one-liner
And three Joey Heatherton jokes.

Before Pacquiao Fight, Mitt Met The Boxer And Said, “Hi Manny, I Ran For President And Lost”

Gov. Romney, I’m passing along some thoughts
With a rather simple goal so that
You won’t make that mistake again: There isn’t
Anyone who doesn’t know that.

Should you meet Mr. Pacquiao a second time
(Which I bet would be nice)
I know it sounds odd & uncanny but trust me:
“Hi Manny” will suffice.

Nietzsche Rocks!

The famous “What doesn’t kill you
Makes you stronger” quote
Countless young music fans can now
Easily recite by rote.

But most of them are unaware
Friedrich Nietzsche said it
And they would insist a pop
Music queen get the credit.

The line Nietzsche borrowed from Goethe
Was a catchy hook that was vital
On a memorable track for Kelly Clarkson:
The first “American Idol.”

“Stronger” (What Doesn’t Kill You)”
Is a feel-good upbeat blitz ---
The Grammy-nominated song has more
Than 60 million YouTube hits.

Nietzsche was a serious philosopher and
You don’t need much know-how
To guess he’d be humiliated to be linked
With something so lowbrow.

In related news, it’s perhaps appropriate here
To point out it’s not just a rumor
That History (as some have long discussed)
Appears to have a sense of humor.

Songs this successful are often dumbed down
And sweeter than boxes of Pop-Tarts:
Fred, God’s not dead as you said. You are. But:
High five! You topped the pop charts.

Facing The Fiscal Cliff, Republicans Keep Saying No New Taxes For The Most Wealthy

Yeah, they still control the House but lost seats:
The other helpful tenet
Is that they had a shot in the other chamber but
Yet again lost the Senate.

Their plan? Make demands, act like winners and
Hope no one will notice
They’re really just whiners and Mitt Romney was
Not elected POTUS.

They’re so blind, they need canes & guide dogs.
They’re endlessly didactic:
Denial has become their way of life --- it wasn’t
Merely a campaign tactic.

Mysterious Super Pac Was Funded By Billionaire Behind Attacks On Kerry’s Vietnam War Service

Bob Perry tried to help races in North Dakota
And Montana at a cost
Of around $1 million --- in both of these cases,
The Republicans lost.

This would suggest Mr. Perry who
Had skill with Swift Boats
Was not so successful this time in
His attempts to shift votes.

Multi-Millionaire Romney Lunches With Obama At 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue

I would bet the one thought that
Must’ve made Mitt sigh
Is the White House is the only house
In America he can't buy.

Thinking Outside The (TV) Box

Fire Angus T. Jones after
His unhinged crazy FU.
Hire Charlie Sheen back
To play his own nephew.

Breezy Point In Queens Was Victimized First By Hurricane Sandy, Now By Looters

When I heard they stole kids’ piggy banks
I said to myself, “Man, this
Is so low you’d have to try really hard to
Get any lower than this.”

Locals are livid and won’t take it lying down.
I saw this defiant attitude begin
With a home that has a new sign on its door:
“I'm here and armed. Come on in.”

Whenever I See Photographs Of John McCain & Lindsay Graham

The former seems like an aging lion who’s
Been feisty his entire life:
The latter looks like his long-suffering and
Plain but very loyal wife.

Romney Adviser Says Right Wing Polling Faces A “Systemic Crisis”

This isn’t rocket science: they
So badly wanted Mitt to win
That they never met a statistic
They weren’t happy to spin.

This may be stating the obvious and is a
Point that I don’t really mean to flog
But I’m pretty sure that Republicans are
Allowed to read Nate Silver’s blog.

End Of The Road For Allen West

The Tea Party favorite (finally) conceded:
His limelight ends, his moment passes.
He said he now wants to spend more time
Avoiding anger management classes.

The Hollywood Reporter Comes Clean About Its Involvement In The Blacklist

If this were going on today, people wouldn’t
Be playing the same games:
Folks would be lining up in order to be the
Very first to name names.

Fights would break out outside hearings:
Many people will have flown
Great distances on their own dime just to
Drop a dime on Oliver Stone.

(Does that seem insensitive, cruel and unfair?
Not really to avoid the ravages
Of having to sit through absolute junk like
Stone’s latest flop, “Savages.”)

The Wachowskis? See ya! Larry-Lana came
Under the spell of a dominatrix:
They get no love from me because I sat through
The third installment of “The Matrix.”

Everyone can happily join in and pile on ---
Hollywood won’t need to lick its
Wounds about blacklisting: so many people
Will show up, they can sell tickets.

Thoughts On The Possible Demise Of a Snack Food

San Francisco Supervisor Dan White
In 1978 was filled with rage
And into modern political history
Was able to write his own page.

He shot & killed Mayor George Moscone
And just a few minutes later that day
Did the very same thing to Harvey Milk
A supervisor who was openly gay.

White’s lawyers blamed it partly on junk food
And to the jury did boldly commence
To ask them to seriously consider what has
Become known as the “Twinkie Defense.”

White’s conviction was on a lesser charge
Which many people continue to agree
Was inappropriate because it was clear what
Happened was murder in the first degree.

If Twinkies hadn’t been selected, would
Jurors have been as quick on the uptake
To embrace a defense based on Ding Dongs,
Sno Balls or even a Hostess Cupcake?

Second U.S. General Sent Thousands Of Inappropriate Emails To Woman Linked To Petraeus Scandal

What emoticons are best to use when you’re
Getting flirty online so much with
A woman who isn’t your wife? John Allen is
Who you should get in touch with.

Why The GOP Is Obsessed With That Embassy Attack In Libya

Can’t figure it out? This is understandable
But don’t worry --- perhaps a light oughta
Go over your head when I say they think
Benghazi in English means “Whitewater.”

Why Romney Lost (Vol. #17)

If this were football, what Mitt had
Been doing ad hoc
Is holding onto the ball and trying to
Run out the clock.

This time-tested strategy can often work
But what should be said
Is don’t run out the clock if you’re behind
Only if you’re ahead.

With Romney’s Loss, Right Wing Loon Victoria Jackson Tweets That Our Country Is No Longer Living

Honey, take a closer look:
What’s clear is
America’s not dead but
Your career is.

Obama Loses First Debate, Still Wins Second Term

It is more than appropriate
On this particular date
To ride into the sunset & say
“Hi-yo, Silver (Nate.)”

If Obama’s Handling Of Hurricane Sandy Keeps Helping Him Until Election Day

Just as the Saxons
Despised the Normans
This will prove that

Justin Timberlake’s Rich Pal Who Sells Houses Made A Wedding Video Mocking People Who Don’t Have A House

Justin Huchel is this idiot’s name
He’s someone we can really hate
Who gives us yet another reason
To loathe people in real estate.

Serial Molester Jimmy Savile's Coffin Is Encased In Concrete --- Allegedly For Two Reasons

One was so no one would be able to open the grave.
The other? The situation
Was so the planned memorial to be put on top would
Have a secure foundation.

I just don’t buy those explanations and when
All is done and said
He was simply a perverted bastard who knew
How to plan ahead.

At The Last Debate, The Mitt-Dr. Evil Connection

Every time that Obama criticized him,
Mitt desperately tried to nip it
In the bud by talking over him. I was
Waiting for him to say, “Zip it!”

Cycling Legend Stripped Of All His Tour de France Titles

Lance Armstrong's career
Now is so checkered
That he can't even keep a
Sheryl Crow record.

I Have No Position On This Poem

The editor of The Atlanta-Journal Constitution
The day before the final debate
Told NPR for three years his paper has not
Endorsed any candidate.

Kevin Riley did lots of research & he claimed
Readers wanted partitions
Between all the events that papers cover daily
And any political positions.

This is the direction papers should go, i.e.
Movie critics reviewing should
Mention the cast & the plot but never if a
Film is either bad or good.

What a new and exciting time for journalism
When no longer in their dominion
Is the need (for fear of offending readers or
Advertisers) to have an opinion.

Yup, this sure is a golden era for each and
Every newspaper institution:
The framers would be proud The Atlanta-
Journal has no constitution.

Sexual Abuse In The Boy Scouts Is Comparable To The Priest Molesting Scandals

Maybe what the besieged Scouts need
To not feel in such a lurch
Is to boldly pursue a possible merger
With the Catholic church.

It could prove beneficial for both groups
To become a joined community:
The act of communion could now provide
Both grace and also immunity.

Anti-Obama Activist’s Affair Ends His Presidency At NYC Christian College

I’m sure all his higher-ups at this school
Didn’t want to lose a
Right-wing mouthpiece as distinguished
As Mister D’Souza.

Alas, it appears he has a new squeeze but
Is still, you know, married: sheesh!
If a shorter leash had been used by the Mrs.
You’d still have that job, Dinesh.

You did so cherish telling each and every Democrat
To --- essentially --- just shove it:
Too bad you forgot about the commandments, i.e.
The one that suggests not to covet.

After The Last Debate, Tagg Romney Threatened President Obama

I’m not a violent man but I sure
Would get in the ring with him.
You heard me right: Mitt’s son?
I’d like to take a swing at him.

I’ll knock him out and then gesture
Triumphantly in the air
And as a shout-out to his old man,
I’ll cut off all Tagg’s hair.

More Thoughts About The Second Debate

I recall playing tennis in high school and knowing
There was just no way to confuse it:
Even though I’d won a watch, the real truth was
My opponent found a way to lose it.

This came to mind watching the Hofstra debate.
The first one? I now knew it
Had been a case where Mitt hadn’t really won
But Obama simply blew it.

This was accentuated then by Mitt’s aggression
But Barack got his might back
In Round 2 when instead of being fair & polite
He knew he had to fight back.

Obama possesses that coveted momentum and
In their upcoming last fight
His opponent will be swinging even more wildly
Than he was doing last night

And as Mitt desperately tries to make contact
His prospects will start to teeter:
He’ll need a knockout sooner than later because
Time’s running out on his meter.

The Second Presidential Debate

Mitt got hit
Often & hard.
Obama (booyah!)
Played the 47% card.

Romney support
Still isn’t brimmin’
With binders
Full of women.

His Benghazi boo-boo
Was a major no-no ---
His homies winced &
Must’ve cried, “Oh, no!”

Tuesday, October 16, 2012

Question I’d Ask Mitt At Tonight’s Presidential Debate

You famously told those fat cats in Boca Raton
You don’t have 47% of the nation’s back:
You later denied this. If you lied then, shouldn’t
You give those folks their donations back?

I Hope Someone’s In A Car Behind Endeavor Unaware Of Its Historic (But Slow) Journey Across Los Angeles

He’s running late, can’t stop glaring at the shuttle and
In no way does approve. It.
Makes him crazy, he beeps and he yells, “C’mon, pal!
Pick up the speed! Move it!”

Late-Breaking Thought Regarding Paul Ryan & The VP Debate

He was like a nervous Catholic school kid
Ordered to go to confessional:
He didn’t seem especially presidential, or for
That matter, even congressional.

Early Thursday Evening

I was startled by all of this awful screeching
And wondered who might be at fault.
Then I realized it was just the skidding tires
Of Mitt’s momentum coming to a halt.

The pundit class loves mocking Biden ---
(He’s a blurter! He might be infirm!)
All Joe did last night was make it look like
Barack will get to have a second term.

Southern California Weather Update

After two months of 100+ temperatures
I now have many reasons
To think that the time has finally come to
Reconfigure the seasons.

Fall will pack its bags, then hail a cab and take over
January, December and also November.
Winter will splinter into February, March and April.
(In time, this will get easier to remember.)

Spring will relocate to May, June & July, a decision
Both well-intentioned and sober.
Summer will follow suit and now hang its hat during
August, September and October.

Some month names may change (Maypril, Decembruary)
But that may be confusing:
So, for the time being, it’s probably smart to just keep the
12 ones we’ve been using.

Sesame Workshop Asks Obama Campaign To Not Use Ads Featuring Its Characters

Are they trying to be fair to Mitt Romney
Who wants to kill PBS? OK, but
If that’s how they think, then maybe they
Should have their funding cut.

Sesame Street now should be getting tough
Not taking it and whining, “Ouch.”
More than Big Bird they need to get in touch
With their inner Oscar the Grouch.

Why (If I Win The Lottery) I Will Give USC $30 Million

This is on the level. I am absolutely telling the truth.
This isn’t just some half-assed, half-baked prophecy:
But Schwarzenegger’s think tank will be renamed the
Mildred Baena Institute for State and Global Policy.

Mitt (Way Too Late) Says His Leaked Comments Were “Completely Wrong”

Mitt now disavows his 47% speech
In its
Entirety, but he kept talking for 74

He was more eloquent than ever and
What’s caused him so much grief
Is most Americans (finally!) know each
Cherished Romney core belief.

Rove and Adelson raised millions & now must feel
Like absolute and total schmucks ---
They were undone by a cell phone camera that I bet
Cost less than a few hundred bucks.

Why Christie Will Never Be President

It’s not because Chris is so out of shape that he
Never could’ve been accepted in ROTC:
It’s because we don’t want a leader who looks

That Former Governor Of The Golden State (And Those Kinds Of Things)

Arnold relished lording it over everyone.
One of celebrity’s great gloaters ---
He was screwing the maid at the same time
Screwing over Cahl-ee-forn-ya voters.

After the damaging love child story came out
He was feeling on the brink. Sank
Twenty million into a vanity project to rescue
His image: his very own think tank.

Body-building, the Kennedys, Hollywood: one can
Resent the forces that spawned him.
All those muscles and all of that strength but oddly
Unable to lift a condom.

Boy Scouts Will Now Report Abusers Whose Child Molesting Was Previously Ignored

This went undetected for so long, one wonders
If in their memorabilia
Perhaps we’ll find secret merit badges handed
Out for pedophilia.

Chris Christie Says Wednesday’s Debate Will Let Mitt “Restart” His Campaign

How many “restarts” does Gov. Romney need
Before looking totally diminished?
That option isn’t really on the table but we are
Much closer to his being “finished.”

The last Republican I can think of who similarly was
Bereft of any message to sell
To voters was Bush the Elder --- you may recall how
For the GOP it didn’t go well.

It looks as if the guys running Mitt's campaign
Are incompetent and asleep at the controls
If instead of closing the deal they’re restarting
A month before people head to the polls.

Romney On The 47% Comment: “That’s Not The Campaign, That Was Me”

So, Mitt isn’t his campaign? Wow.
What a strange point of view his is.
That’s the boldest splitting of hairs
Since Bill redefined what “is” is.

Romney Says His Campaign Doesn’t Need A “Turnaround”

If Mitt’s campaign were a company Bain took over
There would now be terrible tensions
As they sold furniture, computers and tried to screw
Its employees out of their pensions.

Words To Live By

Marie Antoinette’s “Let them eat cake!”
Who could ever top it?
Ann Romney did, also with four words:
“You people … stop it.”

(To be fair, Ann’s gaffes were
Actually done
On two occasions and Marie’s
Just on one.)

But they’re kindred spirits in
Condescension & deceit:
They’re the icing on the cakes
They want others to eat.

The GOP Candidate’s Latest Pivot

This campaign keeps getting
Odder and odder --- it
Seems Mitt is now trying to
Appear more moderate.

Romney wants to shun the extreme far right
Not completely but, you know, just a little
And only because that leaked tape showed his
Contempt for the lower class & the middle.

Obama vs. Romney In Six Words (Hold On --- I Can Do It In Five)

Medicare vs.
I don’t care.

What Should Be Done To Anti-Islam Filmmaker Nakoula Nakoula

Tell him his movie is such a hit
It’s going to be globally released.
He’ll get an all-expenses paid trip
To promote it in the Middle East.

One thing that won’t be provided on
His maiden voyage from obscurity
Is anything that would fall under the
General heading of  “security.”

Re: Mitt’s Accusations About Obama’s Handling Of The Libyan Embassy Crisis

Romney (if he had half a brain)
Soon would have halted it.
He didn’t just jump the gun. The
Truth is he pole vaulted it.

Nakoula Basseley Nakoula --- Filmmaker Behind Anti-Islam Movie --- Was Jailed For Intending To Sell Meth

This stupid bastard whose only success
Was, at the end of the day, making mad
Most of the world, would’ve been killed
In the first season of “Breaking Bad.”

Democrats --- And Republicans --- Slam Romney For Using Libya Attacks To Bash Obama

His timing’s awful, his critique makes no sense.
As I saw Mitt begin it
It dawned on me that regarding this race, he’s
Not really in it to win it.

Political Correctness Run Amok (Vol. #17)

It’s essential that Kristen Stewart apologize
And let all of her fans now understand
Even her fictional affair with a married guy
Was inappropriate in “Adventureland.”

Romney & Ryan Are Still Hyping A Budget Plan With No Details

If they were used car salesman, they wouldn’t
Say if the car had been in crash.
They wouldn’t let you look at the odometer
But would like you to pay cash.

They wouldn’t let you gaze under the hood
But would say the engine is the best: I’ve
Also forgotten to mention they wouldn’t
Discuss allowing you to take a test drive.

Late-Breaking 2012 Race Relations Update

(Yeah, I know I should talk about Bill’s speech:
Did you hear that audience roar?
But I have to mention this incident which is one
That nobody should ignore.)

Former Miss. Gov. Barbour Was Disappointed Chris
Christie Didn’t “Put A Hot Poker To Obama’s Butt”

Hey Haley, I found this link online to a group
You’d like & when it meets!

Casually scratching her wrist,
“One would have to assume that Haley
Is already on their mailing list.”

A Few Thoughts On Patt Morrison’s Radio Show Being Dropped

Since Patt will soon be shown the KPCC door
Maybe it’s time to reevaluate
Some other things just taking up space here
In the good ol’ Golden State.

Pasadena’s yearly parade is nice, I guess,
If you like roses
But it’s been around for far too long, so in
2013, it closes.

JPL? See ya! Curiosity landed but Mars
Is bleak, empty & quite a far
Place to go and just drive around in a
Rather pricey souped-up car.

The Hollywood Bowl is beloved and I
Really don’t mean to goof on it
But why keep it around when everyone
Would prefer it had a roof on it?

The Capitol Records building was built to look
Like a turntable with more than one record.
But turntables aren’t in fashion. Besides, aren’t
Musicians’ pasts often grim and checkered?

Yes, I know there are positive things to say
About the Griffith Park Observatory
But it’s way too high and hard to get to, so
Let’s dispatch it off to purgatory.

Olvera Street? Adios! I’m sure we can agree
It’s from a long ago era --- is
Anyone (without using Wikipedia) even sure
What the heck an “Olvera” is?

Angels Flight runs too short a distance to
Let it remain: I bet
No one will really miss Sinai & the same
Applies to Olivet.

Walt Disney Concert Hall isn’t old and
Things do look awfully slick there
But lose it anyway because its conductor
Has inappropriately thick hair.

(Speaking of the Los Angeles Philharmonic
Instead of Gustavo Dudamel
Dump him and go get that young hunk from
“Transformers,” Josh Duhamel.)

Vin Scully’s been on the air for 63 years?
Take him off KLAC and I mean STAT!
Put him on briefly throughout the day:
Just like KPCC wants to do with Patt.

The Bradbury Building is nice but ancient:
It belongs in Madam Tussauds
Along with The Pantry, LACMA & haven’t
You eaten enough at Musso’s?

The Watts Towers look rickety & were done
Without a professional design
And don’t you think “tagging” whenever you
Look at the Hollywood Sign?

Patt’s a landmark on the SoCal landscape.
Among her many fans, few joke
About her leaving. Actually, none. This is
Going to be KPCC’s New Coke.

Tony Peyser has been a fan of Patt Morrison’s
for the last few decades and appeared on her
show as her poet-in-residence for the last few

Mitt’s Been Taking It Easy The Last Few Days

At this point as the actual nominee
I’d like to mention, Gov. Romney,
To be present in the media, you
Should be --- you know --- omni-.

But you’re off the trail & on your boat
And in the wrong direction. Here
Is a little advice: there are no days off
During a presidential election year.

After The Election, Here’s How Mitt Can Launch His Own Action Hero Movie Franchise

Badly injured, he has amnesia but discovers
As he eventually regains his health
He knows vulture capital tips on how to soon
Acquire massive amounts of wealth.

He becomes known in business circles as
A cutthroat & ruthless entity.
The title for something like this is vital ---
I call it “The Bain Identity.”

Last Thought On The 2012 RNC

Was Clint’s weird speech
A stealth maneuver
(Perhaps the most diabolical
One ever seen)

Because like Huckabee, Ryan,
Santorum, Paul, Christie,
Jeb and Rubio, he plans to run
In 2016?

Clint will be 86
And I will admit
That might not be
Quite the right thing

But really white
And really old
Really appeals
To the right wing.

Clint & Mitt At The RNC

Watching Clint wing it was sad and made me
Want to hide under blankets in my bedroom.
I now know who Romney reminds me of ---
That robotic Eighties relic Max Headroom.
