Every Friday night is the Prime Time Poetry Show Open Mic at Bean There Cafe in downtown Norfolk. Last week, Prime Time Poetry held its 7th edition Battle of the Sexes where the women’s team poetically massacred the men’s team!
It never fails, a Battle of the Sexes event guarantees that Bean There Café can expect a packed house! The crowd listened in anticipation, rooted for their favorites, as they sat on the edge of their seats as random judges from the crowd gave their scores of each poet up on stage that night.
Which poets came to the stage to represent the men’s team and women’s team?

So what do I mean when I say the women “poetically massacred” the men? I mean this was no close call where it could’ve been anybody’s game… the women had the battle win in their pockets from the get go! Based on a 10 point scale where 10 is given for an excellent poem, see how the women and men scored according to each topic round!
Round 1: Abuse of Power
Men: 86 points Women: 107 points
Round 2: The Best Conversation I Ever Had
Men: 96 points Women: 107 points
Round 3: Love and Hip Hop
Men: 99 points Women: 115 points
Men: 281 points Women: 325 points
Congratulations to the women’s 44 point win over the men in Prime Time Poetry’s 7th edition Battle of the Sexes! They are back on their winning streak after having won the 6th edition Battle of the Sexes last month!
The men last won a battle during the 5th edition Battle of the Sexes… when will they snag that victory crown again? Who knows? Stay tuned to when the next Battle of the Sexes will occur by subscribing to these articles or visiting your Chesapeake Poetry Examiner on Facebook!
