C. S. Lewis said (and I paraphrase):

There is no neutral ground in all the universe.

Every atom, every second is claimed by God,

and all of it is counterclaimed by Satan.

Which, though absolutely true,

Satan does indeed seek to take it all,

could be misconstrued

could be seen to say God and Satan have equal claim

to what by rights is God's alone

By right of His manufacture

By right of His power

By right of His being God alone

Or, if you wish

By right of His redemptive work

They are not, they cannot be equal

The Creator so surpasses the created

as to make such comparison absurd

Satan does not, he cannot counterclaim

God owns all, Satan is but a thief
