What Good is One of Four

To god I gave my soul
To Satan I gave my life
To humanity I gave my heart

As Satan received empty glory
he laughed at his fools fortune
and lost his voice

As god rejoiced in his prize
he spoke wisdom in joy
and lost his humility

As humanity received its gift
fellow man fought for all rights to it
and they lost their innocence

All I have left is my conscience
in it broods regret
three parts gone, three parts fool

All that remains is one
in this one there is little
so what should be done with it?
