Who's In Or Out, Who Moves The Grand Machine, Nor Stirs My Curiosity, Or Splee

Who's in or out, who moves the grand machine,
Nor stirs my curiosity, or spleen;
Secrets of state no more I wish to know
Than secret movements of a puppet-show;
Let but the puppets move, I've my desire,
Unseen the hand which guides the master wire.
-- Sir Winston Churchill
