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
