3WW CCXLVI

Each week, I post three words. You write something using the words.
Then come back and post a link to the contribution with Mr. Linky (but please, link to the exact post, not your blog, by clicking on the exact post title). As always, there's no hard-and-fast rule that you have to post on Wednesday.

But I invite everyone to check back often to read and comment on other contributions. This is, after all, a community for writers who clamor for feedback.

This week's words:

Gag; noun: A thing, typically a piece of cloth, put over a person’s mouth to prevent from speaking or crying out; verb: to choke or retch.

Maintain; verb: Cause or enable (a condition or state of affairs) to continue; keep (something) at the same level or rate; keep in good condition or working order; provide with necessities for life or existence; state something strongly to the cause.

Omit; verb: Leave out or exclude (someone or something); either intentionally or forgetfully.

I'm sure nearly everyone will have the same idea this time. Three words and you're into World Affairs!

Not me... I went for slapstick. Or rather, slapstick noir.

A limerick with these three words:

There once was a terrible nag
Who provoked a temptation to gag:
"Maintain your politeness,
Composure, forthrightness.
Omit any instinct to brag."

(I'd be inclined to replace "omit" with "resist.")

Here's my latest Acrostic Limerick.

It seems I went in a totally different direction .lol Typical!
But, that's what is so great, to see all the different thoughts the same three words can invoke. Amazing!
Thanks for organising it for us to share and enjoy!

I agree, there's something about 3WW that really hits the spot. So many different interpretations of the relationship of three simple words. And for ONCE, mine wasn't political! Amy (Old Leftie)

Interesting to see the expectations we all have of what these words will yield...I just incorporated them in something I was planning to write. And the focus was less on the words and more on the message. Each week is different, I suppose.

Kat said...

I'm late. Don't usually participate, but the words spoke to me. LOL.

Sorry it's so twisted.

Way off for the way late, I suppose. As usual.
