Serious Poem II

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

lines run lengthwise, criss-crossing
lines of latitude.

A "friend of the court,"
or "amicus curiae,"
is no friend of mine!

For perfect haiku,
you must check your syllable
count religiously.

You can run, but you
cannot hide, from the sweeping
hand of Father Time.

The four in boring
salesman suit pants were foreign-
born ring salesladies.

I tuned my Toro,
programmed my Panasonic—
then mowed through Matlock.
