No Asking Why

Regarding heroism…

Excerpted from   –   No Asking Why

…Then thinking he might be ok he got out to prove
That he still could and stepped out into bedlam
Get away before more concrete rained

But hearing screams crossed the bridge hoping to find a way
To save the children in the bus from falling
Further.   There was no stalling
And no asking why
