Why sorry? I just wrote that I had given a paper on TWL as a WWI poem.
My point is that it is not primarily a post-war poem.

I guess "Hurry up please, it's time." has come to the end
of its illustrious life. London has taken off the closing requirements of
the pubs. It was interesting to note that that closing law was originally
imposed in WWI (sorry Nancy, but that's yet another WWI resonance) to
the workers in munitions factories from getting drunk -- or so the
Euronews report would have it.
