a train of thought viewed with disdain

the 12 given words:
afoot chain design crime train disdain 
line shine feign nine root sliver

what's afoot?

a chain of events designed
towards the furtherance of a crime?

a train of thought viewed with disdain
was it in line with prospects of gain
to shine on the ability to feign
a nine to five restrain?
or perhaps rooting for fame
it was lame!

with sliver slowly dribbling
from sides of the mouth trailing
to think the fan was that powerful blowing
to cause the spots flying

not privy to spots being stains
or the adhesives were inferior was plain!
