The Plumber in the Walls by Tetrapteryx (USA)

Difficulty: Expert

Once upon a midnight dreary, Mario proposed a theory:
Quantum tunneling occurs in entities both large and small.
Postulated by a plumber, and a quantum-field newcomer,
Such a theory wasn't dumber than astrology at all.
Surely his hypothesis would come to be embraced by all:
He could walk inside a wall.

Nearly every quantum datum is no larger than an atom.
Is a plumber truly like a subatomic wave or ball?
Critics muttered with defiance that the claim was pseudoscience;
That its author's noncompliance ought to morally appall.
Bowser's moral intuition said the theory should appall:
Who could walk inside a wall?

Mario has built a level all his critics to bedevil,
Crafted for experiments of physics-wrenching protocol.
Evidence will be forthcoming, from the wavelength he's becoming,
That our hero's quantum plumbing shows his theory cannot fall.
Mario's entangled course will prove his theory cannot fall:
He can walk inside a wall!
