Art: Pandora's Jack-in-the-Box by Artist john christopher borrero
Pandora’s Jack-in-the-Box

(Accompanying chant to be sung to the melody of “Pop Goes the Weasel”)

A tick, a tock, a moment in time

A step beyond retrieval

A trap once sprung, which can’t be undone,

set for the feeble!

Warn them in the schoolhouse!

Fetch them in cathedral!

Curiosity, you see,

Brings forth the evil!

This is an ancient Jack-in-the-Box of unknown origins. It is, however, believed that when it was sprung for the first time by an unsuspecting little girl named Pandora, all sorts of evil was released into the world.

Although the evil has already been released, and can’t be returned to the box, the box plays the above tune when the curious turn the crank. Believe it.
