Potato in a jacket Batty Rap by Robin Williams (Ft. Batty Koda)

A potato jacket is actually another name for a baked potato. The imagery reinforces the fact that Batty is batshit crazy. Also, jacket may be a reference to straight jackets.

Performers are getting younger, the dresses are getting shorter
It's funny how these pedophiles market your sons and daughters
Illuminati by Wise Intelligent

Entertainers are getting younger and younger while at the same time becoming more overtly-sexual in their presentation of themselves. These entertainers are then pushed on our own kids as role models, thus the moral decay of civilization.

Who shall say I am not
The happy genius of my household?
Danse Russe by William Carlos Williams

A brilliant ending to the poem. Williams brings the poem back to the beginning, reminding the reader that he is still the head of his household despite the previous moment of reckless abandon. He is able to play “contradictory” roles — Father and Freak, Doctor and Dreamer, Man and Maniac — because Williams measures manhood in happiness and passion.

If I admire my arms, my face
My shoulders, flanks, buttocks
Against the yellow drawn shades,-
Danse Russe by William Carlos Williams

Williams then stands in the North room, admiring himself in the mirror. He’s no Adonis, but he revels in his body. To him, it is beautiful even in its age.

"I am lonely, lonely
I was born to be lonely
I am best so!"
Danse Russe by William Carlos Williams

Clearly, Williams is not alone, with a wife in bed, a new baby and the nanny to keep his house together. His loneliness spawns from a lack of personal identity. He feels lonely because as a man he is unable to connect with the women in his house, as a poet he is unable to connect with the blue collar men in his world, and as a pediatrician he is unable to connect with the “real doctors” in his field. With this mantra, Williams embraces the fate he’s been given, and prepares himself to go on with the life he’s chosen, dignified and respected.
