Queen Mab, an anonymous poet who first appeared in the 2017- 2018 academic year with her poem,” Ode to a Campus Bike,” writes poetry pertaining to the ongoing academic and social issues and changes within the LIU Post community. “Talkin’ Division One Blues,” was found on the south hallway door on the second floor of Humanities, and follows the tune of Bob Dylan’s “Talkin’ World War III Blues.”
King Mab is another anonymous poet, inspired by the style of Queen Mab’s witty and musically inclined prose. “Athlete Ain’t Got No Dorm,” was found slipped beneath the door of The Pioneer newsroom on Tuesday, Oct. 9. Given the topic of the poem and the content of this week’s issue of The Pioneer, the editorial board decided to publish King Mab’s poem alongside Queen Mab.
