“The Senate has silenced Elizabeth Warren.

Silencing Elizabeth Warren backfires on Senate GOP, CNN


 

They shushed her, but still she insisted.
They threatened her, but she resisted.
So the minions of hate
Threw her out, locked the gate.
Nevertheless, she persisted.

Yes, nevertheless she persisted
and many more women enlisted
to strengthen the cause
and fight without pause
with raised hands defiantly fisted.
