03-03-09 – FEATURE! – Queen Sheba. We are lucky enough to have Queen Sheba grace our poetry stage this month. So please, don't miss this event! Queen Sheba is currently ranked in the top 10 Slammers in the WORLD! Queen is also president of her own advertising company Oyaxclusive, where she specifies in advertising poetry and performance groups. If you have ever thought that traveling the world to hear others poetry would inspire you, then you should hear Sheba's poetry! She is uniquely inspired, and utterly controversial in her stance for human and poetry rights.
