Nobody Loves a Genius Child

I'm looking for a fic, I think it might have involved suicide, where Tony identifies almost to strongly with the Langston Hughes poem. I think it might have been a suicide note or video? I think Steve found it at some point which was how it was brought to light.

Anyone else remember this fic? I might have been pre-slash Tony/Steve but it might have been gen.

Any ideas?


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.
