Mirror Coincidence: A modest proposal

My husband and I had a conversation about satire. At the time of the conversation, I recalled something I had to read in high school English class many years ago that was satire 'about children'. I couldn't remember the title or the author.
Later that day I was on a flight and the airline magazine had an article about hoaxes and had a paragraph about Jonathan Swift's A Modest Proposal. I was quite shocked, as that was the story I was trying to recall.
