What did I do?

I live in worlds of fantasy,
But people won’t just let me be.

It’s not as if I damage things, 
Or try to fly without my wings.

I only told them of my dreams:
How every day’s not as it seems.

I told them of my friend, the snail,
That only made them quake and pale.

I showed them all the things I’d made:
The Trotterdam and Quisky-Plaid.

I told them I’d been slobbered on,
But by the very lovely one,

That is to say the voice I’d heard,
When whispered by a little bird.

But the man that wore the coat
Thought it best that I not gloat.

I don’t know why he told me that,
Or took me from my little flat,

I don’t know why they took my view,
I’m just as sane as all of you.
