BLOODY PEST

entry picture

(Spanish hawkers)

 

They’re nowt but bloody pests

They never let it rest

“Your braided hair look nice

Sekonda watch is Asda price

New, oooh

Brand new, oooh.

We sell them all.”

 

“My battery wriggly toys,

Headlamps for girls and boys”

They never let it rest

They’re nowt but bloody pests

“New, oooh

Brand new, oooh

We sell them all.”

 

“Just arrived from Gambia

On the last connecting flight.

Give me just one good reason

Why you shouldn’t buy my shite?”

 

“It’s 2 for 1 on gin”

So says the Chucker-In

“All goods half price today;

All-You-Can-Eat Buffet”

 

“Best rates on cash exchange

Half price on Dior range

Tat in a treasure chest”

They’re nowt but bloody pests

“New, oooh

Brand new, oooh

We sell them all.”

 

“Just arrived from Gambia

On the last connecting flight.

Give me just one good reason

Why you shouldn’t buy my shite?”

In fairness, the hawkers aren't that persistent, MC. A disinterested"No thanks" is enough that they move on. I hit in the title to mirror the song, George Ezra's "Budapest".

This took me back to a previous working life existence
when the road to the airport out of Lagos, Nigeria
saw the traffic in forged currency - US dollars were the
favourite - arrive here in London and the wider UK.
I am newly informed then about Gambia's own emerging
commercial enterprise abroad. Travelling salespersons
indeed!!
