Cogs in a Clock.

We are cogs in a clock;
How finely tuned.
Is this an indication
Of our coordination?
Or does it portend to our priority,
To give in to authority?
We are merely members of the system,
We submit to a higher wisdom.
We are gears in a machine
Kept that way so we will never be libertine.
Cogs in a clock;
How finely tuned.
Pruned and festooned,
We spin in conjunction,
Under judicial injunction.
