From a Haitian Tale for children - the ending of the tale where the animals have squandered and not taken care of the water god says -

God said no more to the lizard. He sent for the animals to come to the well. He said, "You came to me because you were thirsty and I gave you a well. I made Mabouya the caretaker. But she gave no thought to the suffering creatures all around her. If one has a banana tree in their garden, it is theirs. If one has a cotton tree in their garden, it is theirs. But if one has a well in their garden, only the hole in the ground belongs to that one. The water is God's and belongs to all creatures."

And it is a saying among the people: "The hole in the ground is yours, The water is God's." Contents
