How does a bookies have a sale anyway?

Yous two-
push that box out the Cowgate
and up the street;
that one that goes past Greyfriars Bobby.

That one in the green clown suit,
he seems to be the ringleader.
Cunt gave me a cup of tea
with a burst bag settled at the bottom.

It’s well dodgy round here.
