Vito and the Eruptions #2

Vito and the Eruptions #2

Thanks to Anne-Adele

When eruption comes
and cannot be stopped
and it feels like maybe what some men feel
right before they do something
right before they do something
they will not live to regret
they will not live past
2) I thought of one of
the Jerry Blavat WXPN Saturday Night acapella groups
one I never heard of
one I never heard of
Vito and the Eruptions from 10th and Shunk nineteen fifty seven
singing “Can’t stop this Train of love” or
“Shaking when I see your face”

3) So there’s this guy we run into
late at night final dog walking time
don’t know if he’s crazy or holy
crazy or holy we don’t know maybe the same
offered to pray for us
must be a scam in there someplace
pay to pray?

4) Saw him last night
Yes “Pray for me
Pray to take away my Shingles Shake
Pray for me to return to my latest version of normal”
and, oh, by the way “Who are you praying to
Which Jesus is this
and what will I owe”
