Hens, Creole proverbs, and food chain
Here are 2 Creole proverbs that mean: might is right.
Ravèt pa jen nor rézon douvan poul : the cockroach is never right before the hen. Poul pa jen nor rézon douvan kouto : the hen is never right before the knife. It is a pithy turn of phrase for the food chain in which we are the last link!
