Imaginary Places Where I Don’t Belong

I tried to visit
Never-Never Land,
But they never let me in,
Even when I was a kid.

So I dived 2000 Leagues
Under The Sea—
I think they thought
I was a giant squid.

The world is full of magic places;
Magic Everywhere,
and I guess I really should have known.
The world is full of places
Wondrous and strange:
Places I never will and never have known.

Thought I’d fly a spaceship
To other galaxies;
Explore the Universe,
Go forth, and boldly Go.

I asked a starship captain
If I could join his crew
He raised his phaser
and said, “No.”

The world is full of magic places;
Magic Everywhere,
described in many a picture, tale, and tome.
The world is full of places
Wondrous and strange:
Imaginary places that are never Home.

Some people never see
Imaginary Worlds;
I’m lucky to have gained
Whatever vision I could win;

But I’ve opened doors
Ten thousand times or more,
and never found a place
where I fit in.

The world is full of magic places;
Magic Everywhere,
and I guess I’ve known it all along.
The world is full of places
Wondrous and strange:
Imaginary places where I don’t belong.
