Is be or is be not

Is be, or is be not, is be one big damn puzzler:
Is you be bigger man for put up with
Clubs and bamboo pits of real damn bad luck,
Or, is take blowpipes for fight herd of pigs
And is by use of snakebite, end they?
— from One Big Damn Puzzler by John Harding

(Pidgin-English translation of the start of “To be or not to be”)
