"Joy" is the tenth and final song in Ricky Ian Gordon's Genius Child song cycle.
by Langston Hughes
I went to look for Joy,
Slim, dancing Joy,
Gay, laughing Joy,
And I found her
Driving the butcher's cart
In the arms of the butcher boy!
Such company, such company,
As keeps this young nymph, Joy!
--The Collected Poems of Langston Hughes, p. 63
