Serious Poem

Only one of the haiku poems below is serious. The others are frivolous. Can you spot the serious poem?

zero, one, two, three,
four, five, six, seven, eight, nine,
ten, eleven, twelve

Do four out of five
dentists really prefer
sugarless Trident?

twelve, eleven, ten,
nine, eight, seven, six, five, four,
three, two, one, zero

Is a poem any
more than a validation
of our perceptions?

I gave the Peace sign
at a football game and was
handed two hot dogs!

The six questions that
reporters ask are "What?," "Why?,"
"Where?," "How?," "When?," and "Who?"
