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.

I'm coming in way, way late to the party :)

constant force = gravity = g

slice of wedding cake = tier

tier + g = tiger

Tiger Lily

Dooood, yes indeed. #5 busted!

Guess you've now see these have been solved. I know these look so much easier/simpler when they're solved than they really are but, you gotta admit, the tendency's to over complicate. The last one #3 is the simplest of all but only if you know what play on words to look for. So...

*in* is the operative word for this answer. read the clue very literally. Cause is not important (part of second line of pairing which does not go to the answer, just points to the connection to word #4.

in you localarmory lily?
or
in your loCAL Armory cala lily

The second one. Done! It's spelled and pronounced either way. Hence all that mumbled distraction between lines 3 and 4. Sorry, it didn't look too bad when first written. I blame the rhyme.

OK t_l111, enjoy your weekend away from your machine.

Could be the perfect storm

But no, not either or.

-- perfect storm = Nor'easter

-- not either or = nor

-- Nor'easter - nor = Easter

And for not telling the truth

I've plead the fifth before.

-- telling the truth = lie

-- plead directs sounds like, said, or phonetically so lie = li (in this case)

-- the fifth = fifth letter of the alphabet = E

-- E before lie phonetically = Eli

'Cause in your local armory

You might swap me in kind,

-- in your = hidden in "local armory" = Cala

For this life line's no aid;

Is another way to find.

-- life line = phone a friend

-- no aid = subtract friend

-- phone a another way = call a = Calla

A forceful piece that's constant

Carved a slice of special cake.

-- forceful constant is gravity and piece of = g.

-- slice of special cake = tier

-- carved = g inside of tier = Tiger

Put it all together and

Some sense of this you'll make.

-- lilies

Thanks to all...

is this a record number of pages for final solution to a puzzle?

I do believe there's one by TryingToThink that's pushing 20 pgs that's been waiting for an answer since Feb... still unsolved...

p.s. couldn't find the 'off topic' dude..
