Short Stories of Ernest Hemingway

What type pf figurative language and tone does this poem use?

For we have thought the longer thoughts
And gone the shorter way.
And we have danced to devils' tunes,
Shivering home to pray;
To serve one master in the night,
Another in the day.
‐Ernest Hemingway

There are examples of personification and alliteration in this poem.The tone is one of desperation when there is little to lose and a sense of fear in darkness.
