The Tale of the Cocklebur Ick
‘The Tale of the Cocklebur Ick’ is a song and video story featured in the ecological musical story App Series, Rockford’s Rock Opera. It’s a sweet, but sad, tale that illustrates the meaning of extinction. In it we are introduced to the Cocklebur Ick (a fictional creature from Victorian times) and join her on a journey to Infinity – the mystical island where the last of every species goes when it’s extinct. Although ‘The Tale of the Cocklebur Ick’ is a little sad, the wider story and the messages behind it are hopeful and inspiring.
