Satire is a literary genre that uses irony, wit and sometimes sarcasm to expose humanity's vices and foibles.
(Foibles- a minor weakness or failing of character.)

Not only is satire used in literature but in the real world.
As humans, we sometimes use satire when making fun of a friend for saying or doing something either out of stupidity or, well just out of stupidity.

For example: As I read, "a poet is a man speaking to men", she looked at me as if I was lying and reading the context correctly. "Oh well that is profound," Lorin said with a satric tone.
As a scholar writing this essay, you would think that they would have either stated that line in a more "profound" manner or have just let that be obvious to the reader.
