Country music legend Dolly Parton, 74, recently took to social media to share a lighter outlook to the coronavirus pandemic by sharing a hilarious poem.

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.”
