Alexander The Great argggghhh

Chanukah Chanukah for a history buff
Like me and others..just cant get enough
I endeavor
This trek to those days
I encounter this man I utterly despise
(To rhyme..Option 1: DAYS with an Australian accent Option 2: DESPISE with an Irish accent)

You see this man, although great, gives me a complex
I’m sure you’ve heard the name, his name is Alex
Alexander the Great what an enormous legacy
Conquered the Civilized World by age 33

Here we are in the year 200and6
Still naming our kids Sender and Alex
Not to mention Cities
and Candies

And me?
My thirty third
Is fast approaching swift as a bird
And I’m still working on the uncivilized world
Of my kids...
and my desk...
and my mind

Anyway...don't feel bad..
I promise you, it's much easier to fight wars and conquer lands, than to clear your desk..or mind.
Youre doing good, my friend, doing good

Cute post.
By the way, it should say 2000 in place of 200.
See, someone really read it. :)

First off...It was Colin Farrell that played Alexander not Brad that's been corrected...

Thanks and g'day mate..

You might be right could be easier to conquer the world then the mundane and personal things that need to be changed..

I should really be looking to someone like Grandma Moses for inspiration she didnt pain until she was 70! and by the time she died she had painted thousands of museum quality paintings...
