fly a flag from a pole
or flag down a taxi

raise a warning flag
or our spirits may flag

but it’s flagrant misuse
not to report abuse

when another raises a flag
to declare their despair

listen attentively
for those warning signs

and flag those in authority
make them responsible

support and kind care
of each other is fair!

Friday Fun – flag

  1. Kate, wonderful photo to go with the poem. Engagingly written, and an important message. Teachers, health care professionals, and social workers are charged with the duty of reporting abuse, but everyone else should take responsibility too! Take care! Cheryl
