satire

Here is my best explanation:

'ridicule' is the definition.
(thesaurus)

'one stare wildly around' is the wordplay.
'one' becomes 'i' (Roman numeral).
'wildly' is an anagram indicator.
'around' means one lot of letters goes inside another.
'stare' with letters rearranged gives 'satre'.
'i' inserted within 'satre' is 'SATIRE'.

'makes' acts as a link.
