Dragonfly or Drone

Once upon a time
You saw a dragonfly
And knew it was a dragonfly
Because it was a simpler time
When dragonflies were dragonflies
But, now, when dragonflies are drones,
You know, you just don’t know at all
If that thing there’s recording you
And even if it isn’t, it’s still crazy.
It’s true.
It’s crazy, not you.
Actually, you’re crazy too.
A dragonfly has never been a dragonfly
