You cannot do it that way; Latex fits the title stuff at the top of the 
page AFTER reading enough stuff to know approximately where to cut the 
first page. A way to accomplish what you want is to make your flushright 
text part of a multi-line title and push the appropriate line to the 
right using various tex/latex incantations. Alternatively you can 
manually typeset the title stuff without using \title and the related 
commands such as \author, etc.
