Title:The Good Samaritan
Notes:Although the artist of this sculpture is not identified, the commitment in the Scottish town of Glenrothes to public art is notable. Hundreds of works of art have been installed throughout the town, part of a decades-long project to keep this rural town from decline.

by Althemus Delahoussaye III

How do you do?
I'm fine, thank you,
how do you do?
Isn't that a little superficial?
This little poem isn't
nothing other than trying to say:
Why don't you
introduce yourself to your neighbor, and,
try to be a little friend to him?
Why are little human beings so afraid
of making new little friends
of the people who even live nearby,
or even down the little street?
