1. A hondo is a form of Andalusian lament or sad song; why does it need a burner.

2. 'Tis is a contraction of "it is. Therefore it would be incorrect to say "and the pity 'tis, 'tis true". Prefer: "And the pity is, 'tis true".

Why are you making these un-coerced statements? Isn't that a tad risky? People look at you funny if you start uttering thoughts that are really coercion free while they are reciting hypnotic lines from TV ads, enforced sentiments from beer commercials, and mandatory political thoughts from Rush Limbaugh.
