She offers herself up freely to the massive horde. After all, it's expected, isn't it?
Like wolves, they tear her to pieces, relishing each viciously rending strike.
As their prey falls helplessly to the ground, they continue to pull flesh from bone, as a multitude watches on, hungry for their turn to feast on her remains.
Limbs are triumphantly paraded about for all to see; there is no shame in this. They wouldn't know what to do with shame, if there were.
This wouldn't have happened without her willingness, then again, we all offer ourselves freely, when we click 'Tweet'.

    I cannot tell you how much I like this! :) The build up of animalistic violence and the juxtaposition of the concept of shame is superb, and then the brilliant twist into comedy, but comedy that reflects the reality of actually putting something "out there". It's brilliant.
