A sense of obligation

The following poem is the only S. Crane I've read. (At some point I'll get around to reading The Red Badge of Courage...)

A Man Said to the Universe

A man said to the universe:
"Sir I exist!"
"However," replied the universe,
"The fact has not created in me
A sense of obligation."

-- Stephen Crane
