Life fails to provide

a dress rehearsal, hence

the stage fright remains

all too real throughout

the play, never knowing

what act you're in, 

which scene is coming up, 

or whether the prompter

will be on duty to

save the day, as the 

voice trembles beneath

the spotlights of truth,

while it searches for 

the next line that 

doesn't break character

and favours the plot...

Good point, Holden, and the poem inspires a lot of thought. On balance, though, maybe the great uncertainty is the best part of life.
