Ordinance: Master, what does the future hold?

Xenia Epigram
Please accept from me this page,
     didicated to the word ordinance
Used by many an important sage,
     needing a term for observance

But wait, I promise an Epigram
     more fitting for this word.
When I receive a better program,
     for now it's just absurd!

Can I make a poesy, furnished so pupils might see
Newly didactic sentences, perhaps informing, and oh yet provided free?
Decree or ruling look all too manifest. But is fitting?
Enactment, order? - or ceremony, judgment? Oops! I excluded witting!
I reason hierarchy and therefore direction, but frankly ought I
- throw meanings so - allusions written with equations spry?
