On Thursday, Parton took to Instagram and Twitter to share a video where she recited a poem she’d written about COVID-19. She started her recital by shouting at someone off-camera to keep it down while she records a video in the studio.

Responding to the person off-camera, the star says: "What? My accountant's calling? Well, tell him to kiss my assets goodbye because they're dwindling to nothing.” She jokingly adds: “No, you can't put a mask on a turtle!"

"This too shall pass"

Parton then starts her poem saying: "This too shall pass, as all things will / if the virus don't kill us / the stay at home will.” The musician notes how children are “bored and restless” as they screamed and yelled.

Stop it about the toilet paper!

She joked that the teenagers were “just plain mean” and “they bite your bleepin' head off.” The country music legend then teases “those lovin’ couples that were once so sweet and cozy.”

Parton jokes about couples fighting

Parton mocks them by stating that the couples are now fighting “cats and dogs, like Donald [Trump] and [Nancy] Pelosi." The "9 to 5" vocalist then prayed for the Lord to get everyone back to school and work and out of the house “'fore someone gets hurt."

Asking God for a vaccine

Taking a bit of a serious turn, the singer also asked God to provide a vaccine either in shot or pill form, otherwise “if the virus don't kill us, the stayin' home will." Ending her poem, the star started shouting off-camera again saying: "Stop it about the toilet paper!"

Paying tribute to Kenny Rogers

On Wednesday night’s “CMT Giants” memorial concert special, Parton paid tribute to her friend and fellow country artist Kenny Rogers. She sang Rogers’ 1977 hit “Sweet Music Man” accompanied only by a guitar.

When did Rogers die

Rogers died at age 81 in March 2020, in Sandy Springs from natural causes. Soon afterward, CMT announced that it was going to honor the late star by having other artists perform his songs.
