What Rhymes With Orange?

From the Oxford Dictionaries website: Orange has almost no perfect rhymes. The only word in the 20-volume historical Oxford English Dictionary that rhymes with orange is sporange, a very rare alternative form of sporangium (a botanical term for a part of a fern or similar plant).

I would suspect that hidden somewhere in the archives of some botanical school someone has written tongue-in-cheek verse that uses the word ‘sporange’ to rhyme with ‘orange.’ I think that person (or persons) should come forth.
