    The verse following has been disguised by applying a simple substitution code. Each letter of the alphabet in the original has been replaced by a coded equivalent wherever it occurs, although in some cases a letter is substituted for itself. The full punctuation has been retained to provide a few clues.
    Can you break the code and read the verse?

    Is a keen observer of life
    The word intellectual suggests
    Straight away
    A man who's untrue to his wife.

    Technically, though, that was a cypher, not a code 😀
