A lucky escape on the X43 bus from Manchester to Burnley on the motorway near Bury
Manchester was buzzing and full of fun,
Many had travelled for the Sunday10k run.
On boarding the bus back to Burnley,the X43,
The people were happy and full of glee.
Chatting and laughing discussing their day.
But something really scary was to happen on the motorway.
At 50m.p.h. the bus did cruise,
Passengers watching and admiring the views.,
A brick was hurled at the driver's front screen,
The perpetrator of this hurl was incredibly mean.
Fortunately the screen did not fall apart,
But gave the driver quite a start.
He confidently steered it onto the hard shoulder,
And calmly rang the police to report the hurled boulder.
This criminal act could have turned out much worse,
With some of us ending up in a hearse.
An object hurled with not much thought,
Please make sure the perpetrator is caught.
