Dolly Parton is sick of staying home like the rest of us and she decided to write a poem about it.

Putting her signature touch of humor on the situation, Parton shared the poem in a video across her social media channels on Thursday (April 9).

The poem goes like this:

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 squawk
The teens and tweens are just plain mean, they bite your bleepin’ head off
All those loving couples that were once so sweet and cozy, now they fight like cats and dogs like Donald and Pelosi
Lord, get us back to school and get us back to work and get us out of this dagum house before someone gets hurt
Lord, please find a vaccination in the form of a shot or a pill because if the virus don’t kill us, they stayin home will

The country music icon has been active on social media while self-quarantining, sharing words of encouragement with fans on a regular basis. Recently, she made headlines by donating $1 million to Nashville’s Vanderbilt University Medical Center to help fund research to find a cure for coronavirus (COVID-19).
