System in place

We want the system to be in place,
But will it give us any space?
Its arch will measure
And define every step for you.
What will you be
But a creature of the milieu!

We despised the monarch’s throne
As it was erratic
And subject to his fantasies
We’d adjust our tone.
But what have we made ourselves now
– Wound up and all automatic!
