Lucky it's not his specialty
Soothes unwanted stings
Unkind and unable to bring together
Tradesman need not submit
Unscrambled the missing title
Wild horses couldn't fix that mess
The reorganization's impossible to swallow
Politely and tenderly refused
Followed without being obligated

Not allowed entry to the performance

Spoiler for trying another letter

"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

hey hey MoMoney, t_l too - this one will not have a single letter as an answer but rather each of the ten lines will have a one word answer found similarly to my previous "one letter" riddles.

I apologize for being so vague regarding the structure of these one-liners. Realize they are not very obvious on their face. Playing with them for quite a bit while composing can skew ones objectivity as to their apparency. And in retrospect, cannot see how outlining how these work could take away from the take away in any way. Well, spoilers anywho...

Spoiler for a little HINT as to the word play


Spoiler for a bigger HINT, here's an example
