I’m surely not the only one
Who sits and wonders why
The ceiling can be walked upon
By a spider or a fly?
Do they have little suction pads
That hold them very tight?
Now if I tried walking upside down
Well then you’d have a fright.
I’m sure it wouldn’t work for me,
And it wouldn’t work for you,
So put it right out of your mind.
Don’t even think of glue.
The insects don’t use suction pads,
And never try to cheat.
They’ve all got microscopic hairs
Upon their little feet.
Our surfaces are smooth to us,
But rough to insects’ toes.
So that’s how they walk upside-down,
Well that’s what I suppose.
