Clerihew Alexander The Great

Alexander The Great
Went off to dominate
But in Persia came down sick
Died at thirty-two too quick

April 23rd Prompt: Write a clerihew, a rhymed four-line poem about a person. The rhyme scheme is AABB, and often the rhymes are ridiculous. The first line is the person’s name, and clarihews are often humorous, but the best are also true.
