back Les Civils 2 September 1915
A l'Arrière [In the rear] by Weiluc

-- Elle: Dire qu'd 80 kilometres d'ici, il ya des gens qui s'entretuent.
En Choeur: A l'amende!!! vous avez parle de la guerre.

She: They say that 80 kilometers from here there are people killing one another.
Chorus: Finally! You have spoken of the war.
[Weiluc has placed his socializing civilians in a 'back room,'
while military figures can be seen in the 'front', a visual pun perhaps,
to distinguish between those behind the lines (in the rear)
and those at the front, where the killing takes place.]
