To celebrate Sushi Maki's new menu items, the folks over there are offering up a $50 gift certificate, good at any of its locations, to one Miami New Times Short Order reader. But here's the catch--you gotta post the best haiku. [Hint: Creativity trumps perversion.] 

You Haiku, Fu Manchu? Win a $50 Gift Certificate to Sushi Maki!

For example, here's mine:

Mackin' on Maki

Raw fish slapped on rice
Sushi Maki is the bomb
Sake to me, babe!

(Yeah, I have no plans to quit my day job anytime soon.)

Regardless post yours at the end of this column by Wednesday night and we'll call for a reader vote on Thursday. The best haiku, as determined by the readers and Miami New Times' food bloggers, will win!
