Poetic Journalism

 

 

There once was a guy named Farage
who didn’t want Britain enlarged.
He ranted and raved
for the pound to be saved
and the EU to be discharged.

 

For those not in the know,  Nigel Farage MEP is the leader of the UK Independence Party (UKIP).  dVerse Poets’ Pub wants a wryly poetic look at current events.
I find it impossible to say anything nice about this chap.

  7. I think the limerick is a perfect form for political rants. Good one. And thanks for explaining, though the tone says a lot.

    I also would want an embargo
    On Brit being part of farrago
    Of those foreign states
    That everyone hates,
    So I say Farage he should Fargo!
