How can you sleep at night?

Fear leaps from the page
into hands filled with hatred,

stories twisting and turning in
minds torn by watching tragedy.

Your words spill onto the streets,
later found in a police report.

Mobs stirred by ignorant panic
turn the night’s sky into fire,

terror made real by lies
printed like sparks near tinder.

And so, I am moved to ask –
How can you sleep at night?
