Thread Name: ADD: Kilroy Was Here (Ewan MacColl)
Subject: Kilroy Was Here-Ewan MacColl
Will anyone out there give me their interpretation of Ewan MacColl's "Kilroy Was Here"? I took it to be about the way the common labourer is forced to double up on their workload during times of war. I suppose I was influenced to view it this way from reading Orwell's "Road to Wigan Pier", and his portrayal of the coal mines during the first world war. Am I far off of the mark here?
