'Filibuster, ' a word that is
Derived primarily from Dutch
Meaning a pirate in the biz
Of robbing and looting and such.
We hear the word in politics
When politicians seek to try,
Using a talking bag of tricks,
To stop a bill from getting by.
Politicians keep talking so
The legislation gets stuck there,
While speeches continue to flow
With filibustering hot air.
Politicians pirate away
Time and money - their games to play.
