Five Haiku

[Does the haiku form have any meaning in English?]

Quantitative Easing
Search for your own ass
with both hands, and learn whether
shinola comes out.

The one friend I have
who gives one hundred percent
and takes, with no lies.

Household Formation
He has three daughters,
she one son. Their combined debt
ends the recession.

I Keep Forgetting Heaven Doesn’t Exist
You gave me a match,
then mocked my immolation
and pissed gasoline.

Bad Grammar Is Your Only Weapon against the Ruling Class
Missed connection: You
with earbuds in. Please unplug.
Mix your noise with mine.
