Inquire, it's likely that this you will hear
She's not the one, so the other, my dear.

Whenever opportunity presents you might say
Take it from me, it's not better this way.

Announced like a pastimes appropriate host
It's the smallest that often bugs you the most.

Purposely left hanging, though still not a waste
Those fresh too remark, all in good taste.

On the surface there's not much for which to see
When landing the big roll in this great tragedy.


From each of the five you must now find one
Still something's to do, before you are done.

Hey back at you EDM - thanks for starting this one off - not what I have in mind for that one though.

There are five mini-riddles (one per couplet) each with a one word answer and then the five answers are further involved in a puzzle to find the final answer. Each couplet might contain any numerous kinds of plays on words like homophones, puns, double entendres, etc. (reading them very literally can be helpful). Ultimately though, I would call them what am I's. Here are a couple of links to similar ones from before:
Hot Headed, Forsaken , Same Sounding , Sword Play

PS - your second guess for the third couplet is on track...
