Dolly Parton took to social media last week to recite a poem she wrote about the struggles we are all facing due to having to stay at home during the coronavirus pandemic. She started the video by hollering at someone off-camera, saying, “Can you hold it down in there? I’m trying to make a video in the studio!”

Visibly frustrated, she then looked to her other side, yelling, “What? My accountant’s calling? Well, tell him to kiss my assets goodbye because they’re dwindling to nothing! No, you can’t put a mask on a turtle!”

Turning to the camera, Dolly said, “Does this sound like your house?”

Parton then launched into the poem, called “This Too Shall Pass,” in which she made humorous references to everyone stuck at home.

“This too shall pass as all things will. If the virus don’t kill us, the stay at home will,” she says.  “The kids are bored and restless, they scream and yell and squawk. And the teens and tweens, they’re just plain mean, they bite your bleeping head off. And all the loving couples that were so sweet and cozy, now they fight like cats and dogs, like Donald and Pelosi.”

She then continues, pleading with the Lord to “get us back to school and get us back to work, and get us out of this dag-blamed house before someone gets hurt.”

She then prays for a vaccination and repeats the first line again: “If the virus don’t kill us, the stay at home will.”

In addition to sharing the funny poem, Parton surprised fans by re-releasing six of her classic albums to streaming platforms on Friday. The albums include “I’m Gone,” “Better Day,” “For God And Country,” “Halos And Horns,” “Little Sparrow,” “Live And Well,” and “Those Were The Days.” The release features 93 songs altogether.

“Surprise,” she wrote on social media. “93 of your favorite classics are finally available again online! I hope these songs bring some light into your life during these hard times.”
