It's a simile slam dunk

I'd never thought of poetry in terms of a cut throat team sport. But things got competitive at this week's National Poetry Slam in Palm Beach, Florida.
The slam is apparently the largest team poetry event in the world, the superbowl of the spoken word, a high speed linguistic knock down.
What would the reclusive Philip Larkin have made of it all?
