The Punch and Judy Show is almost over. Punch has prowled the stage, hitting with a big stick and springing unpleasant surprises. He keeps to monosyllables. Ugly is what the audience expects. Judy carries the baby. The baby has a robust Constitution and a future. Judy keeps to the script. It’s October, and this time Punch has gone too far. He will go before the hearing in November, but will he accept the verdict? Punch says he’ll think about it. He’ll keep everyone in suspense. Suspense was never his forte. The curtain will fall with Judy still holding the baby.
