The Definition of Satire and a Short Example
A Satire Can Hurt Just as a Fire Burns
Satire- a Definition and an Example
I hear people all the time say, "satire is so stupid; I don't get it." The point of a satire is to bring about social change through the use of sarcasm and/ or irony.
Sometimes you have to read it a few times; sometimes the author can be misunderstood. A satire usually does not have a rhyme scheme-it's more of a free verse, or a narrative. I created mine one day I was thinking about all of the people in this world getting plastic surgery and wanting to look "perfect". I thought about the image we are putting in young minds that if they don't like the way God made them, then they can pay a doctor to make them look any way they want. Feel free to comment: Here it is:
How To Get Skinny and Beautiful in No Time at all- a Satire
If you really want advice on how to lose weight, watch a morbidly obese person down a bigmac, large fry, chicken pot pie, fried pickles, twinkies, a large soda, and an apple pie with ice cream on the side. As they salivate and moan over their meal, you will look like a chicken bone. Or else, it will make you so sick, you won’t be able to eat for a week.
If you want to get skinny, take a vegan hunting. Have them load the gun, sit in a tree stand, and work for their meal. You’ll end up eating a dandelion salad with fresh honey from the bee hive. You might just eat anything to stay alive.
If you want to lose thirty pounds in thirty days, get liposuction, a tummy tuck, and a breast reduction. While you are sucking it out, also get cheek implants, lip injections, and don’t forget to lose those wrinkles! Get a face lift, some botox, and some permanent black eyeliner.
If you are mad at your parents, pierce something-your nose, your tongue, your cheek, your back, or get a tattoo on your toes.
Dye your hair some random color like pink and don’t even care for one second what people think!
Take my advice and you will be skinny, beautiful, and unique in one week- but not for long- since everyone else wants to change and they’ll all look just like you in no time at all.
