"If we must die, let it not be like hogs Hunted and penned in an inglorious spot,While round us bark the mad and hungry dogs,Making their mock at our accursed lot.

O kinsmen! we must meet the common foe!Though far outnumbered let us show us brave,And for their thousand blows deal one deathblow!What though before us lies the open grave?Like men we'll face the murderous, cowardly pack,Pressed to the wall, dying, but fighting back!"

-- Claude McKay
"If We Must Die" (1919)
