WIN! Mafia II Xbox 360 Gangster Pack

To mark the launch this week of 2K's gritty and authentic open world crime sim, we have a host of Mafia gear up for grabs. Today it's the 2nd and final 360 prize, and the last in our week-long giveaway.

Thanks to our friend at 2K Games, we have FIVE Mafia II "gangster" packs to give away. We'll be giving away one each day this week. Each pack contains:

* Mafia II game * Mafia II t-shirt * Mafia II cufflinks * Mafia II artbook * Mafia II moneyclip

So how do you win today's 360 pack? Easy. It's time for haiku!

Because you love haiku. Hit us up with your mafia themed haiku in the comments. The cleverest/wittiest haiku will win. Or if not, possibly just the one I like the most.

You've got until midnight tonight to get your entry in. The winner will be announced over the weekend. No multiple entries please, but if you don't win you're welcome to try again tomorrow with a new entry.

And yesterday's PS3 winner is... with inevitable predictability, Gobbo. It may look like a limerick, but it is in fact a haiku:

There once was a gangster named Ahmed, Got confused, wrote a haiku instead: Peaceful placid lake, Cement Boots were a mistake Good night, soon I'm dead.

Shouts out to proj, welbot, ArghZombies, yikes and Dutch for carrying on, undaunted, in the face of such stiff early competition.
