“I can’t leave my mansion anymore without my Filthy Rich Glasses” – Richard Miller

Homelessness in America is so prevalent specifically the Bay Area, where it is getting out of hand. Homelessness is on the rise again and nobody’s doing anything to fix this problem . The amount of families that can’t make ends meet rose to 30%, and now there are just homeless families on every street you go on. Don’t you just hate when you’re trying to walk on Market Street to go shop for designer brand clothes, but then you end up seeing a line of homeless people from the Tenderloin begging for money. We all know how fed up you are with all of these dirty vermins that are plaguing our city with their terrible and disgusting outlook. Well, I am glad to introduce to you a brand new technology called the Filthy Rich Glasses which will allow you to capture the feeling of having the American Dream.

He is now gone thanks to the Filthy Rich Glasses. Not only will it help you get rid of the homeless from your sight, but you will also look so cool at the same time. All of your rich friends will be so jealous that they will have to jump on this life changing invention.

So how do they work? Well, the Filthy Rich Glasses are actually very easy to use. All you have to do is put them on and turn it on. Then, the glasses does the rest of the work. It filters out all of the homeless people while keeping the city looking clean. The glasses filters the filthy by detecting their nauseating odor.

    Your satire was really good! It was quite effective because it made me cringe a bit! I especially loved how your ideas were very unique, and you wrote it really well! I would try to improve it by making it a bit more Juvenalian because sometimes I laughed in a humorous way, but overall it was great! 😀

    I really liked the concept of your satire. I like how you played with the idea of wealth and a perceived vision of society. I think I would have been cool if you talked more about what happened to the homeless people in the city. Your piece was really good.

    Your satire was very effective as it clearly pointed out the issue surrounding poverty and the lack of acknowledgement the rich have on this. The thing I liked the most was the image because it looked really good and made it seem as if the glasses were real. One thing you can probably improve on to make the satire better is to make it more dark in certain areas.
