Authors' Note:  Hot to trot is an intriguing established idiom, as reflected by its many tribute-verses, such as this one
Not to trot, a variant employed in the above verse's final line, has received considerably less attention.





Authors' Note:  Although the difference is no longer well demarcated, wiggling originally implied movement in place without forward momentum, as in squirmtwist or jiggleWriggling, like the directionally motivated activities crawling and tunnelling, may be the ambulatory technique to choose when escape from entrapment is needed.
