How is he also satirizing society?

A

B

Twain is satirizing how society likes to spend their time and money when it comes to raising their children to be such bad poets.

C

Twain is poking fun at how inefficient the undertaking business is if a little girl could get to a dead body before the actual undertaker.

D

Twain is pointing out how ridiculous the overly-sentimental society is when it comes to death.

E

Twain is only satirizing bad poetry, not society here.
