Sign of the Times

Write a short satirical story based on a current social or political issue that you feel strongly about.

Satire is a powerful tool to expose society’s foibles in a humorous, exaggerated or ironic way. Choose a topic close to your heart and craft a compelling narrative that uses satirical elements to critique, scorn or ridicule that very matter. How would you accentuate the absurdities or paradoxes about this issue? What kind of characters and situations would you utilize for your satirical commentary?
