gridspec with text in one of the axes

I am trying to produce a set of plots using grispec. There should be an images shown in each of the axes (using imshow) except in one of the axes, where I want to show/plot some text. However, the text seems to be too long to be displayed in one line. Is there a way to print it in something like a text box?

I created a minimal example (see below)

I can not / do not want to make a string variable with three quotation marks (docstring), because I am reading the text from a bigger ascii file.

Thanks for your help!

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
import matplotlib.gridspec as gridspec

def main():
goal is to show justified text in one axes of matplotlib
there are two examples I found on stackoverflow. But I am not sure how they could be applicable here
fig = plt.figure(figsize=(5, 10))
plt.subplots_adjust(left=0.1, right=0.9, top=0.95, bottom=0.1)

n_rows = 5
outer_grid = gridspec.GridSpec(n_rows, 2 )# ,wspace=0.0, hspace=0.0

lst_files = [ 'circle.png'
            , 'circle.png'
            , 'circle.png'
            , 'circle.png'
            , 'text'
            , 'circle.png'
            , 'circle.png'
            , 'circle.png'
            , 'circle.png']

for cur_map_id, cur_map_file in enumerate(lst_files):
    cur_row = (cur_map_id % n_rows)
    if cur_map_id / n_rows == 0:
        cur_column = 0
        cur_column = 1

    # preparation: no axes
    ax = plt.subplot(outer_grid[cur_row, cur_column], frameon=False)

    # fix for the fact that the fourth entry is text and not in tmp_lst_imgs
    if cur_map_id > 4: 
        cur_map_id = cur_map_id - 1
    # the actual plotting
    if cur_map_file == 'text':
        lorem = 'Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.

        ax.text(0.05, 0.9, lorem, size=6)
        print cur_map_id
        im = plt.imread(cur_map_file)

print "done!"
