What lies beneath the surface truths shall bare their teeth put out their booths once the hook's set? No idle threat beguiles with smiles.

I saw the phrase “what lies beneath” in a lot of posts lately, which made me think it was a prompt, but I can’t find it if it is. So I’ll credit Christine E. Ray’s poem “What Lies Beneath?” on her wonderful site “Brave & Reckless” for being the muse.
