Freakonomics Haiku

Steve Levitt is such a big deal in Chicago that he has been asked to donate an original haiku (!) for a fund-raiser on Wed., Sept. 14. So he went ahead and wrote himself some haiku. Then he felt a little funny being the only haikuist in the Freakonomics family, so he asked me to write one too. And I did. Now, dear readers, here is the question: have you read this blog carefully enough to discern Steve’s writing from mine? Guess which author wrote which haiku, below.

Real estate agents
And sumo wrestlers will cheat
If given the chance

If people lied
As seldom as numbers
I would believe you right now
