Genius Child

This is a song for the
genius child. Sing it softly, for the song is wild. 
Sing it softly as ever you can – 
Lest the song get out of hand. 
Nobody loves a genius child.
Can you love an eagle,
Tame or wild? Can you love an eagle,  

Wild or tame? 
Can you love a monster 
Of frightening name? 
Nobody loves a genius child.
Kill him – and let his soul run wild.
Langston Hughes
