"The turtle says 'no!"

Snapping Turtle Senator Mitch says don't,
His way or the highway, or agree he won't
America held hostage to the whims of a man
Who is against every democratic plan
Tough tits to what's good for the country,
A one-man muscle-flex in the land of the free
Never mind that we're hurting, it matters not,
He personally ties progress up in knots
Threatens non-cooperation, but has he ever?
We've learned, Mitch, that you'll never
Anyway, so it's just more angry saber-rattling
Meanwhile, to help the people we'll keep on battling
The paper lion roars in a out-of-power rage;
Is on display for the visitors and paces his cage

I always felt he was more of a turkey, with that wobble thing under his chin. "Gobble, Gobble, Gobble!"
