Er, you mean, tell us why it's NOT erotic.
Let's look at the first page (approximately) for reference.
"
Oh these Orphic words of I tothe uniniated having no importthese words of I not obvious nomeaning to the mind of thee to thy intelligence unravelable words thewords of I to the senses notapparent
oh my poesy beyond theordinary understanding of thee whatbe there meaning what be theresense what can say I to rend theethy hair in perplexity what sayethI in mystery rend thee then theewill see

This is not erotic at all. He is crying in fear and sadness, with blood all around, and smoke everywhere. I see nothing sexual referred to here, nor anything to "turn me on" in the least.
Prove me wrong my opponent.

You are PRO. You must prove that the poem is erotic poetry as the resolution suggests.

"You are PRO. You must prove that the poem is erotic poetry as the resolution suggests"

there is no need for me to prove the pro position
as
you said
"Eh. It's not that erotic"
the words " It's not that..."
means it is erotic but not very much erotic

so you agreed with my position that the poem is erotic thus there was noting for me to prove

thus i must win the debate

Con

"there is no need for me to prove the pro position"
Yes there is. Look. You are pro as we all see it.
You agree with me, I am the one who wins.

Also, give spelling and grammar to me. He has tons of uncapitalized words.

I did not read a single instance of a clown being raped by tentacles. This "work" can not be considered erotic.

hi Ajabi how are you I have 3 points
1) why s it not as erotic the others
2) what do you mean by weird
3) being a person who knows about Sufism did you get the idea of the "rend" or in other spelling "rind"

Nipples come in at page 12, and it gets a little weird, but it ain't exactly erotic erotic like your other works.

Reasons for voting decision: Con conceded, "It's not THAT erotic," meaning it is somewhat erotic. However, he was the only one to supply an actual argument so the win goes to him.
