Haiku summaries of economics papers

When I followed the link to this page of economics haikus from Cheap Talk, I was actually expecting it to lead to David Figlio, who also likes to summarize papers in haiku form.

I think that summarizing their own paper in haiku form would be an excellent exercise for our students who are on the job market: probably if you have trouble with such a summary, either your paper is not focused enough or you have not thought hard enough about what it means.
