Genius Child -Langston Hughes

 

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.
