Let me tell you of three men,
who went their separate ways at end:
The first insisted on his hell,
and that’s exactly where he fell.
The next demanded to keep earth
yet lost it all, for what it’s worth.
But the third man, in a second,
let go of all he had for heaven
and was unable to retain
the smallest token of his pain,
for when he had breathed his last,
he, too, received just what he asked!
