People are far too complicated to be able to describe in a few words so I am not even going to try.

  1. At last – a ten-letter word (and a tough one at that). Here goes:

    Apocryphal tales, I’ve heard said
    Persist after true ones are dead.
    One fake quote or two
    Can make it seem true
    Regardless of how it’s misread.

    You see; to appeal to the mob
    Politicians don’t have a hard job,
    Hiding truth behind lies
    As their words tantalise,
    Leaving good folk with nowt but a sob.
