A Tale of Two Totem Poles



This is a tale of two totem poles that have relatively recently found their way onto the Dock at Cedar Key. No one knows where they came from or what they're doing here or what they want. They have, however, informed us of their names and demand to be addressed in the proper manner: Mr. Totem Pole with Hanging Light, and Mr. Totem Pole with Head Light.

Sorry, Messrs. Totem Pole, but you both look like overgrown tiki lamps to me.

Not how the Native Americans envisaged them being used I imagine!
