His Very Own Punch and Judy

He bought himself some
red and white canvas,
cut a window in the front;
made a swazzle, practised

so it didn't rasp his palate.
On his right hand
was Mr Punch, who named
the others: Judy, the crocodile,

a string of sausages. He
practised hanging the Beadle,
kept on repeating,
'That's the way to do it.'
