There is an old fellow named Farage/
Whose anti-Romanian barrage/
Reflects a deep fear/
That foreigners here/
Are all out to squat in his garage.
A note on pronunciation:
I have previously rhymed Farage with ‘disparage’ and with ‘large’. But it seems it is in fact two stressed syllables, the first with a short a, the second with a long one. For some, that will rhyme with ‘garage’, for othes it won’t – so I put ‘barrage’ there to set the rhyme.
One interview in the Independent went like this:
“By the way,” I ask the UKIP leader, “how do you pronounce that place where you park your car?”
“Gárage,” he replies. “Although you, as a Northerner, might call it a garridge.”
“If I was from Richmond or Wilmslow, it could be a garáarge.”
“Pronounce my name however you like,” the politician says. “I say Fárage.” (Rhymes with barrage.)
