  • "If We Must Die" by Claude McKay
  • Line 1: If they are doomed to die, at least let the, die with pride. Line 2: Imprisoned and killed in a bad place. Line 3: Meanwhile in the bad place, surrounded by unmoral people. Line 4: The unmoral people mock the prisoners (his people). Line 5: Let the people die with pride. Line 6: So that the people may die in a somewhat peace. Line 7: So that the bad people they defy will be forced to honor them. Line 8: Talking to his people, saying they must fight their enemy. Line 9: Although they are outnumbered, they must show that they are brave. Line 10: For every hit his people take, they should kill one of their enemies. Line 11: Asking them, but for what if only death awaits them? Line 12: They will face their foes bravely. Line 13: Outnumbered, dying but having an honorable death.
