Out of the Darkness and Into the Light, Paul Kiritsis.

There was once a wise man
who lived near Twin Towers and hence
found plenty of ruminating time
to acquire a grasp of logical sense.
He thought the events of nine-eleven
unravelled a rendition of the Fall
in which Americans were prison mates
forced to sit and stare at a wall.
Behind it nine conspiracy theories
kept the shining truth at bay,
amusing the ignorant with cut-outs
to give the illusion of foul play.
Absorbed in quixotic falsehoods
with all their friends in tow
"Truthers" won't budge from their seats
since it's all that they know.
But every so often one might
jerk his leg and spin right around,
realising that the jail's just a front
and his mind's now unbound.
Feeling his way through the dark
he discovers stairs that lead up to earth;
to a version of nine-eleven far simpler
than the sum of lives lost might be worth.
Gaping in awe he casts a glance
at the shadow play's original form--
a matrix of towers, planes, pentagons,
Al-Qaeda and a terror-like storm.
The wise man harks back to the jail
overcome by joy and grief--an infusion
spurred by empathy towards ignorance
and the will to dispel their illusion.
He re-enters to enlighten and teach
but most prefer to keep him at bay;
they cringe at the thought that somebody
could ever know better than they.
Failing to perceive the misinformation
through which nine-eleven myths stem,
"Truthers" may forever be doomed to wander
in the dark which surrounds them.
