3WW CCXLIX

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 and paste it to Mr. Linky below). 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: 

Flag; noun: A piece of cloth or similar material, typically oblong or square, attachable by one edge to a pole or rope and used as the symbol or emblem of a country or institution or as a decoration during public festivities; verb: Mark (an item) for attention or treatment in a specified way; signal to a vehicle or driver to stop, especially by waving one’s arm.

Might; modalverb: In reported speech, expressing possibility or permission; expressing a possibility based on a condition not fulfilled; used in questions and requests; used to express possibility or make a suggestion.

Passive; adjective: Accepting or allowing what happens or what others do, without active response or resistance.

'might' has two meanings. I used the latter

As today is December 7, these words seem destined to be about Pearl Harbor.

I found these ones pretty tricky actually! Got there in the end, though.

Wow, I ended up going really dark with my poem using these words (not that dark is anything new for me.) Sort of wrestled with this for a bit, but ended up being good creative stretching for me though!

Took some liberties - a political poem set in the world of dragons and wizards. Hope you like! Amy
