Taste of Justice

Poetry concept:
A quinzaine is a poem with three lines that has fifteen syllables. No rhymes. There should be seven syllables in the first line, five in the second line and three in the third line (7/5/3). The first line makes a statement. The next two lines ask a question relating to that statement.
They say justice is for all
How does justice taste?
Is it free?


Poetry concept:
10 line poem. Start with one syllable, each line has one additional syllable.
Cold as ice
A rising storm
Burning from embers
Silence in the distance
yet the ground begins to shake
Birds lose their voices, stone crumbles,
winds become turbulent, so quiet
So quiet, no one can hear you screaming
