… or, Limericks in Honor of Diodorus Siculus

That clever old gent Diodorus
Has written a history for us:
    At forty-odd books,
    It’s given strange looks
By all who dare wade in the morass.
A Sicilian once wrote a story
Omitting all details if gory,
    ‘O dear Diodorus
    Please, this time, don’t bore us!’
Cry readers at every foray.
In telling of Great Alexander,
Diodorus takes care not to slander—
    For he’s always uncritical,
    If not apolitical,
And guilty of trying to pander.
