Laundromat god required the faithful
to watch the entire dryer cycle tumble.
Use of a line and clothespins was apostate.

Laundromat god adjusted all washing machines
to accept SNAP cards as well as Apple Pay.
Rolls of quarters lost their relevance.

Laundromat god snuck away to the playground
and encouraged children to play in mud.
He instigated food fights.

Laundromat god summoned
all the discarded newspapers from around the city.
Provided sixteen deep of coupon clippings.

Laundromat god challenged and defeated
Quick Mart god in a gross receipts contest.
Rocky Road ice cream was free while quantities lasted.
