'Twix' or Tweets


Question

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

right logic but looking for a different word, rats

Given their perfomance could be grounds for war

Battle

and not that

When you're in a jam, I'm the one way out

So make your escape, thereby leaving do doubt

Coda?

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.

Great responses t_l and plasmid. t_l nails two more. think each of you is closer to my answer on the last two than the other. would like to say more but...

OK, so these are individual riddles each with their own answer, but all the answers give you another answer?

yes, that's right. the method of finding the final answer from the five one word answers of the "mini riddles" might be hinted at in any part of the OP that is not the five couplets (okay, including the title). thanks for your interest

A tie?

yes, not it, sorry.

gave a veiled hint in my last response to fabpig

By my logic

Given their perfomance could be grounds for war

Where several such acts possibly settle the score

could be

aire, if you are a fighter pilot

Rationale is that the answers {allot, rear, sneak, aire, exit} would then lead to a fairly clear answer to the overall riddle having to do with beans, beans, the musical fruit, and fitting the "tweets" clue from the title

Will try a more serious answer later on

and the final answer hinted at by 'Twix' ('twixt or betwixt) and Tweet (as in a message using twitter - apologies if not so translatable for the international crowd) and "as every other" in the intro couplet
