Two line riddles, are these this time just five
Then as every other before, a final answer to derive


Grant it just might sound like a really great deal
Yet this given designation leaves no room for appeal

I tend to bring up, and educate in kind
All of that which follows, and what is left behind

Before each peek preview, and up on attack
A little soft-shoe, to steal away from the fact

Given their perfomance could be grounds for war
Where several such acts possibly settle the score

When you're in a jam, I'm the one way out
So make your escape, thereby leaving do doubt

close again but not what you'll need for the finale.

think a couple of keywords (played upon of course) make for slightly better fits on these last two guesses.

"There's no such thing as 'one, true way'; the only answers worth having are the ones you find for yourself; leave the world better than you found it. Love, freedom, and the chance to do some good -- they're the things worth living and dying for, and if you aren't willing to die for the things worth living for, you might as well turn in your membership in the human race." -- Diana Tregarde in Burning Water by Mercedes Lackey
