Environment Satire It has come to my attention that our nation is in the middle of earthweek. At a time when we all stop, as Americans, and take a look at all of the great accomplishments we have made that we could have possibly overlooked while running around with our busy schedules.

The men and women who clear the land and provide the materials for our homes. And what about electricity? The greatest discovery of all time. We must not forget about the men and women who spend hours on end getting in and out of those little white suits and rubber gloves to dispose our radio active waste.

We can go on in comfort knowing that tomorrow the sun will rise and with it, bring another four hours of gridlock traffic, eight hours confined to a cubical, 30 minutes idling your car in line at taco bell, and finally

This same metaphor reigns true even today in modern satirical writing within the structure, tone, and what the writings are used for; dependent upon the point of view, I personally choose….
