Stephen Crane - "Have you ever made a just man?"

"Have you ever made a just man?"
"Oh, I have made three," answered God,
"But two of them are dead,
And the third --
Listen! Listen!
And you will hear the thud of his defeat."

I love this poem, I think because of how simply its phrased. The just man cannot survive in this world... The world is neither made for perfectly just men or populated by them, but it isnt supposed to be, either, as God seems to know.

I do not think this poem is about the devil or what not but about it is about how disobeying "God" may result in death or either it may be about how we walk the world not caring and that we may just be another person.
