celebrity endorsement

what we mean by
he is a man of principle
is that he is a man who never grew out of
wearing his easy virtue,
like a sixth-former’s CND badge;
unsullied by the grubby,
real-world need to compromise,
achieving naught but self-satisfaction
and a sanctimonious hatred
of his gainsayers.
