I would think wrapping a script around it should solve that.

It stops because you may be assigning a different static IP to each subsequent box, and so you need to pass a different -a parameter each time. (The -i alternative is a recent addition.)

If each box gets the exact same config instead, such as because each one gets the variable parts via DHCP, it’s trivial to make it loop:

$ while true ; do ./netinstall-cli … ; done

Looked at flashfig as an option?
Mikrotik has a video on it:
