Three short lines, fired over social media in response to questions of why Senator Elizabeth Warren was silenced on the floor of the United States Senate on February 7th, 2017, for daring to read aloud the words of Coretta Scott King.

And, as many have pointed out, these three lines read as if they are the opening passage to an epic and ageless tale.
