An alexandrine is a bit of light verse about Alexander the Great, right? Mithradates Eupator asked, on Facebook, about the identity of the first woman who slept with Alexander, revealing only that she was from Larisa, so I composed a limerick:
There once was a girl from Larisa
who went by the name of Melissa
with whom Alexander
began to philander
and was hotter than a plate of harissa.
The girl from Larisa who
Bonked Alexander and
Found him not Great,
Got from his teacher an
Lesson in unity
On her next date.
