What tips would you have for a satirical prompt?

I’ve only read one prompt, but I have never written an analysis for a satire. So, what sort of tips would you have for a satire, just in case?

The purpose of satire is typically to critique a flaw or highlight a truth. There are generally some devices that are used regularly in satire so be on the lookout for analogies, irony, and humor.

CollegeBoard confirmed that they won’t be assessing AP Lang for satire
