Poetry – A Limerick for Farage

A Limerick for Farage

There was a xenophobic banker

Full of bombastic rudeness and canker.

He raved and ranted

And never recanted;

A self-serving nationalistic wanker.

If Rees-Mogg is the epitome of a posh exploiter who uses good manners and arrogance to mask his devious activities then Farage is the opposite. He is a merchant banker who pretends, through his beer-swilling, fag smoking and ‘straight talking’, to be down with the working man while actually stuffing away his cash. This ‘man of the people’ is one of the highest-paid politicians with a company that he is stuffing hundreds of thousand into.

Brexit is a cash cow for these guys.
