Being familiar with
This puzzle, I decided to make a riddle somewhat like that.
I started by
Trying to find an answer that might indicate that the lines are incorrect, and I came up with Fake.
Thinking it was going to be too hard...
I made sure that the capitals gave a hint: The answer is fake
That gave us another way of thinking with it:
The line gives us the answer, but if someone didn't know that I was pointing towards the answer, it might serve as a hint that the lines are incorrect, or fake.
With that, I started making the riddle,
Making sure that the first 3 lines were fake, or incorrect. And then the middle 3 lines have some truth, and the last 2 lines were true. Thats a what fake (as in person) would have done. They got caught... and they end up spilling the truth. Hence the truth in the last few lines. Another subtle hint towards the word fake.
For the intended solution path...
To be honest, we are genuine, hoaxes we dont' like
So, everything here was fake. 'To be honest', they arent' really honest, and fakes is definitely not genuine. A fake thing might be a hoax; a fake thing does like hoaxes, after all thats what they are!

Explode a letter: Rearrange, I am not an ape
Surprisingly the truth is; far from what it seems
For everyone says we're not a person with a cape.
All 3 lines here has some truth in it here, with some fake parts
And now you know the truth: Kindness is not our trait
Everyone despises me, the jail might be my fate.
Now this is the full truth, the jail might be where a fake goes, kindness is usually not a fake's trait.
