Where? a walk into Extinction

room 10 ECHOES

Whitworth Park, Oxford Rd., Manchester, England M15 6ER, United Kingdom

Where have all the flowers gone? Young ones have picked them, every one. Where have all the forrest gone? Gone to logging, every one. Where have all the ice caps gone? Gone to oceans, every one. Where have all the islands gone? Underwater, every one. Why have all the people come? For survival every one. Where have all the food crops gone? Gone to deserts every one. Where have all the children gone? Gone to war zones, every one. Where have all the creatures gone? Gone extinct, every one. Where have all the humans gone? Gone to history everyone. Why must all the rebels come? For survival every one!
