OK let me try to explain it better. ‘Hand’ can mean pass as in ‘hand me that pen’(call this meaning hand1). ‘Hand’ can also mean a hired worker (the answer has a typo, hire should be “hired”, sorry) as in ‘the rancher hired five more hands to round up the cattle’ (call this meaning hand2). ‘Hand’ can also mean a fingered appendage as in ‘I have two feet and two hands’ (call this meaning hand3). ‘Hand’ is also a unit of measure equal to four inches as in ‘the large black horse was 18 hands tall’(call this meaning hand4). ‘Hand’ can also mean the five cards a poker player is dealt as in ‘when playing poker the player with the best hand wins’(call this meaning hand5).
So if we add the right meanings to the sentence we get the following; Hand1 a hand2 a hand3 a hand4 and hand1 a hand2 a hand5 a hand4. In other words it is saying move your hand (hand3) a short distance to the hired worker and pass him a poker hand (hand5) that same distance. Clear as day. Hand a hand a hand a hand and hand a hand a hand a hand.
