Rock Cellar Magazine

The current reality facing many people the world over right now is one of anxiety and confusion, set in place by the coronavirus pandemic and the restrictions on our daily way of life. Dolly Parton gets this — she’s familiar with the concept of a 9-to-5 job, after all — and she’s here to help.

On Thursday, the country music legend uploaded a poem she put together that captures the zeitgeist of this unique societal moment quite well, beginning with the line:

“This too shall pass, as all things will. If the virus don’t kill us, the stayin’ home will!”

It’s all pretty clever, and is a nice little surprise from Dolly. Enjoy it below:
