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
