This is a test

…testing, testing
do you hear me?

…testing, testing
do you see me?

…testing, testing
one two three

in the silence of my room
I wonder the tests I shall resume

when away from stage and microphone
when I'm away and all alone

…testing, testing
…one two three

where all of life is but a stage
where some of us may reach old age

where some of us will be called away
before we've had the chance to say

…testing, testing
do you hear me?

…testing, testing
do you see me?

So please do know when the testing is done
exit stage left, to sit with the Son.

Hello, is there anybody out there???

This is what this reminded me of immediately, Karilea...

sing along to your heart's desire, we are listening...

regards, sudhir...

 Hey you, out there in the cold,
Getting lonely, getting old, can you feel me?
Hey you, standing in the aisle,
With itchy feet and fading smile, can you feel me?
Hey you, don't help them to bury the light.
Don't give in without a fight.
Hey you, out there on your own,
Sitting naked by the phone, would you touch me?
Hey you, with your ear against the wall,
Waiting for someone to call out, would you touch me?
Hey you, would you help me to carry the stone?
Open your heart, I'm coming home....

by Roger Waters (Pink Floyd) - The Wall

I loved this poem! Yes, all the world is a stage, and it is also a test. A great combo of metaphors.
