Question

Could be the perfect storm

But no, not either or.

And for not telling the truth

I've plead the fifth before.

'Cause in your local armory

You might swap me in kind,

For this life line's no aid;

Is another way to find.

A forceful piece that's constant

Carved a slice of special cake.

Put it all together and

Some sense of this you'll make.

"arm(s)" - swap letters around & get mar(s), ram(s)

No, that does not refer to rearranging letters this time. See HINT in post #39 for hopefully not too confusing info as to what it may refer to. If confusing ask and maybe I wont confuse further....

Wow, better than mine I think,

Amendment; a different fifth. And dont forget the directors. (so also not isle but great thinking!)

And yes, a totally different set of letters or words for the other pairings.

local armory = military base

swap =exchange , px post exchange or bx base exchange

me in kind = kmeind, kimend,kinmed

don't know what "me" refers to; apparently not straight me. or, me in type? tymepe

piece of tymepe= tyme =time

oops, skipped a couplet. maybe supposed to? n0 aid

way too complicated. this one is actually the simplest of the play on words I have used to date. Even then I suspect you may need to know the overall theme to know what you are looking for.

(again see post #39), it acts as more of a segue than part of the answer.

they swap tales, stories

No, and I fear I have totally muddled things up.

The last line in the third pairing does not end the sentence but can be read without pause with the first line of the fourth pairing. What I was trying to get at by the HINT in post #39 and what I meant by segue in my last post. You can solve the third word by using only the first line in the third pairing

Still think all would be better off knocking out the second word from the second pairing first.

Easter

Isle

allies(a from plead or l from 5th of all letters in that line)+lies/ or stick with lies

stories/tales

tails/tales

short cut

Running in circles and I have to leave for awhile, bet I'm going to slap my head when i see the answer! :D

edited to include the second word

Am afraid I'm dense again. Dont understand tails? tiger_lily111 had some insight into this one in her earlier post.

You are correct that lifeline should have been one word. Also checked plead and that was a typo too but plead (pronounced pled) is an alternative spelling.

And did we ever solve the second pairing?

I guess

i've decided that the 4th and 5th are "is" and "truth" but that means allies or aligns won't fit.

Be back later

And for not telling the truth Lying →

I've plead the fifth before. And “confessed” <?>

...the last line. am looking for a different fifth (and not from the amendment as was established in a prior reponse to chicory).

Please keep at it...

Lilies or Lily from L(5th letter of the line) + lies

Need to say this carefully.

fifth is not meant to be the fifth letter in the line. Oh so close, but still a different fifth.

I tried to work out the Easter lillies aspect. But didn't see where the other elements came in sync.

I need a fifth... good riddle

So, no as before. Must say am confident this is about to be broken open.

But you've already had a couple of shots. Got to go out myself but go ahead and tie one on and I'll join you soon.

Edit: That was just a yuck, not a HINT.

Only regarding the second pair of lines. Still a different fifth. You were closer with your last line of reasoning for fifth. Excellent thought tho, will have to remember that one for future puzzles. Oh, and like that you have not forgot about the *before*.

The rest of above is not it. Be back in a bit...
