Sillypedia (And Not A Child In Sight)

“..On tender hooks”/

Is a folk saying, a phrase/

Generally meaning/

Well, I’m not sure but/

I’m kinda sure that the expression got it’s start…/

Some thing to do with butchering meat/

“We’re all on tender hooks” could mean, imagine/

We’re precariously hanging in a freezer/

Waiting for…well, you know./

I think I’ve also heard some people say/

“On tender hoofs”  or hooves maybe/

which would obviously be an entirely different matter/

Complete with entirely different origins/

I’m thinking this time   We’re cattle again/

But this time we must walk softly as to not step in anything.
