JACK-IN-A-BOX

Slow
Slowly does it
There’s plenty of time
REMEMBER: One mustn’t reveal oneself too early
First you must build the suspense
Yes, that’s it
One
Ever
So
Small
Movement
After
Another
Building on
The last movement,
Getting quicker and quicker
As the time gets nearer,
Until there nothing is left but
SURPRISE
