Translation of Haitian Creole text:
III. GIVE and TAKE
A little Give and Take upholds a friendship.
You have beds to sell,
I have beddings to buy.
Neighbors are family,
Good riddles make good friends.
The knife may be sharp, it never scrapes its handle.
Those who always share never die of hunger.
Long live Diplomacy! Long live Fraternity!
