Ever loved a sandwich so much, you wrote a poem about it? Now's your chance. We're holding a contest for you, our community members, to craft a haiku about a certain memorable sandwich, or sandwiches in general, that will be featured prominently at our All-Star Sandwich Festival.

Just to brush up real quick, a haiku is comprised of a 5-7-5 syllable structure. But you know that, right?

Please leave your haiku entries here as comments. We'll keep this open until Friday, July 8th at 3 p.m. then an esteemed team of wordsmiths (translation: the staffers at SEHQ), will review all of them, and pick a winner. Usually we limit contests to one entry per person, but feel free to share multiple haikus, if you feel so inspired.
