Paper Cranes

Poetry for Peace Contest

The Poetry for Peace contest was held from 15 September until 14 October 2011. The winners were anounced at a ceremony at UN headquarters in New York.

Below is one of the contest entries.

Peace, Love And Harmony

Peace, Love And Harmony
Why Is There War In The Economy?
Guns, Blood And Death
Does Anyone Die Of Regular Bad Health?
 
Why Do We Kill?
Just For The Thrill!
Who Will Pay The Bill?
When The Bodies Are All Still.
 
Peace In The World Is All We Want To See.
Why Do People Flee?
We Should All Celebrate With Glee.
Peace, Love and Harmony.
 
We Should All Put On Our Party Pants,
And Give Peace A Chance.
