So, no more greyhounds will run …

So, no more greyhounds will run
in New South Wales; the word
comes down from the Premier.
It is well known by The Quality
that such things
are bad for the working man.
And nobody wants to see him
owning even a hound.

He should watch horse racing
(The Sport of Kings.)

The wowsers get to do their
victory lap.

My grandfather was a working man.
He had his beer and his Capstan
cigarette.
And he used to like a bet.
Best to forget …
