Stephen Crane - I stood upon a high place,

I stood upon a high place,
And saw, below, many devils
Running, leaping,
and carousing in sin.
One looked up, grinning,
And said, "Comrade! Brother!"

narrator is looking down on the unorthodox behavior of the "devils" (not necessarily in a physically high place) but when the look up at him (grinning because the narrator is being hypocritical) and call him brother, it familiarizes the narrator with the devils and speaker realizes they are just as bad as the rest of them - can be connected to Lord of the Flies by William Golding when Ralph notices that all the boys have become savages
