Handful of Almonds

The Praised One is here
The one who we hold so dear
Giving handfuls of almonds

The people are excited
Crowds fighting to get a glimpse
Men, women, and children, receiving his gift
The handful of almonds

It is finally my turn
The Praised one gives me a smile
Then the handful of almonds

And while all the other boys and girls had a fresh, glowing treat
I lift my hands to see mine
Only to see them broken, rotten and hardened
My handful of almonds

    Sometimes the almonds are rotten and sometimes they're delicious. Forget what the rotten almonds looked like just remember the taste.
