Langston Hughes: Poems

What do you imagine the later poem with the same title would be like? Can a poem get any darker than this? How might it be different, similar?

Yes poems can get darker than this. The Chimney Sweeper actually has a pleasant tone despite the dark themes. I don't know what you mean by the "later poem".
