    Grant the snob: teacher.
    Ms. Emma, the faker.
    Tante, doesn’t like no.
    Jefferson, Hog to Man.

    Fried chicken, comfort food.
    Coffee, ease the nerves.
    Tea cakes, can’t resist.
    (Gaines-74), food commodity.

    Life in the 1940’s
    Mulatto, Black and White.
    White: Henri. Black: Grant.
    Jefferson, Death row Mulatto.

    A Lesson Before Dying.
    Lessons to be Men.
    Lessons to love family
    Lessons to know sacrifice.

    A Lesson Before Dying
    One white, three colored
    One colored man breathing?
    Who’s accused anyway, Jefferson

    White verses colored, always
    Hogs verses men, right?
    Jefferson would soon die
    Shall die man instead

    Grant must tell him
    He must assure him
    He’s a man, Man
    Rather him die, Hog

    All men are equal
    Colored, White, still Equal
    No need for inhumanity
    Human kind, needs change

    White man is killed
    Grants life is over
    Wrong place, wrong time
    Compared to a hog

    Wants to educate Jefferson
    Die with his dignity
    Make Jefferson a man
    Pichot agrees to ask

    Walks through back door
    Many questions were asked
    Drinking bourbon, Feeling sad
    Let die a hog

    Waits for grants visits
    Recalling his childhood school
    No faith in grant
    Racism in the south
