The Work of Heroes

Common Heroism…

   The Work of Heroes

The school bus carried our most precious cargo
Hanging on the edge
Of a precipitous ledge
And all we could do watching was hope it wouldn’t go

And into the deep
Beyond the reach of even our best

But there were those that came forward to prevent that test
And did what they could to keep
The kids safe and sound

The children could not end up below
Hoping to dredge
Them up and out.   No they couldn’t go over the edge
It was the work of heroes
