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.
My heart is shown on National Geographic Chanel My heart is a dolphin mad from a severe training it escaped. My heart is a monkey sad from a Hollywood circus was expelled. My heart - - a chameleon... It is your harpoon that delights it, it is your vector that assures it, in colors of ashes it melts, from a nuclear waste it originates... My heart in gas chambers produces not blood, but poison gases!
