I recently tried my hand writing satire in my post “Letter to Donald Trump.”
I didn’t even come close.
I did get a couple of nice comments from a couple of bloggers who got the point of my post. Thank you for taking the time to read and comment!
What did I learn?
Leave satire to the experts!

You’re too nice for satire! I thought you were just appealing to trump’s better nature!
No, I was really trying to be slightly sarcastic and a brat. Yikes! I really really need help with my writing. Sigh. Seriously, no sarcasm? I felt a bit rude, especially when I asked “Who are you?”
Better nature? Now is that sarcasm?
See! I’m not nearly as nice as you!
Us Brits use sarcasm in all sorts of situations, perhaps that’s why I got it!
Thank you! Sarcasm takes a lifetime to learn?
Here in the UK we start at an early age!
You can’t be sarcastic if you’re not. : ) But one can be subtly ironic. There are gradations in there. Words come easy and not, now they do and then they don’t. As to me, an explicit language is rougher than implicit one. The latter is often tacit but is approved by a few of those who are not calling themselves as experts, and by those possessing some refined senses.Thus you should not worry about the number. : )
I don’t think I came across as sarcastic or ironic, I totally missed it, thank you for the comment.
Satire is certainly tricky! 🙂
Yeah and I thought I was sooo clever!
