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.
The Time I killed Millions of Innocent People As I dropped from the bomber I watched the panicked faces they would no longer see the beautiful places There were screams and chaos people running everywhere it reminded me of the time in Laos what happened now has been a dare The closer i got the more people screamed as the air got stronger i never would have dreamed this much of me ponder The people around me brought back my whole fate i felt as if he the bomber that had dropped me would never want to wait I hit the ground as I exploded and bombed all over The bomber that had dropped me is probably proud Though this is not how i feel i wish i had a four leaf clover The people dying and some surviving made me as you might imagine guilty i heard the ambulances arriving thinking of myself as greatly filthy
