Dolly Parton has uploaded a video of herself speaking the words to a poem she has written, isolated at home and having a whole lot of fun. The video ran on Good Friday, bringing a whole lot of cheer to those unable to work 9 to 5 or even to go on their easter holidays this year.
Here is the poem in full.
This too shall pass as all things will
If the virus don’t kill us, the stay at home will
The kids are bored and restless
They scream and yell and squalk
And the teens and tweens are just plain mean
they bit your bleepin’ head off
And all those lovin’ couples that were once all sweet and cosy
Now they fight like cats and dogs
Like Donald and Pelosi
A poem for all of you ???? pic.twitter.com/HpuWLfE5Mf

Lord get us back to school
and get us back to work
and get us out this goddamned house
before someone gets hurt
And Lord please find a vaccination
in the form of a shot or a pill
‘Cos if the virus don’t kill us
The stayin’ home will
