I do not understand your point.
This was a stripped down problem related to a method
of displaying results in Maxima, method which is used by factor()
and I intended to use in one of my functions.
I am a professional mathematician and I don't know Lisp
but I use Maxima and like it.

With the provided code I get an error message in Maxima:

Maxima encountered a Lisp error:
Error in MACSYMA-TOP-LEVEL [or a callee]:
MACSYMA-TOP-LEVEL [or a callee] requires less than two arguments.
