You can make the table the size of the page less say margins then
make a table cell that has the left alignment style, or actually I think
that may be default.  One thing to note thought is that you need at
least two columns of data in the table.  So you will need a dummy
column with empty data.

Something like:
table_data = (("Some text", ""),)

Another potential snag is that table text data does not wrap at the cell
ends, so you a Paragraph flowable; however, keep in mind that a
Paragraph flowable has to be xml entity ok, you can't have <,>,& non
