Kanye West wrote a poem about McDonald's and we're lovin' it.
The 39-year-old rapper contributed to Frank Ocean's "Boys Don't Cry" magazine -- which was released over the weekend in accompaniment with the artist's new album, Blonde -- in the form of a several stanza ode to french fries, titled, "The McDonald's Man."
While the poetry is very silly and largely complimentary, one line -- "I could see it through his artificial meat eyes" -- prompted the fast food chain to respond via Twitter, writing, "We’re lovin’ the love for McDonald’s World Famous Fries and Apple Pies. Like the beef in our burgers our love for our fans’ creativity is 100 percent."
Read below for the full poem:
McDonald's Man McDonald's Man The french fries had a plan The french fries had a plan The salad bar and the ketchup made a band Cus the french fries had a plan The french fries had a plan McDonald's Man McDonald's I know them french fries have a plan I know them french fries have a plan The cheeseburger and the shakes formed a band To overthrow the french fries plan I always knew them french fries was evil man Smelling all good and s**t I don’t trust no food that smells that good man I don’t trust it I just can’t McDonald's Man McDonald's Man McDonald's, damn Them french fries look good tho I knew the Diet Coke was jealous of the fries I knew the McNuggets was jealous of the fries Even the McRib was jealous of the fries I could see it through his artificial meat eyes And he only be there some of the time Everybody was jealous of them french fries Except for that one special guy That smooth apple pie
Ohhhh, Kanye. What a treasure you are in our lives.
"Boys Don't Cry" was released for free at special pop-up shops in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and London on Saturday, and is currently going for hundreds of dollars on eBay.
In response to the after-market publications, Ocean's mother encouraged fans to be patient, instead of paying big bucks for a copy.
"Don't Pay those ridiculous prices for the mags on eBay. Just hang tight a sec," she wrote on Twitter on Monday.
Meanwhile, Kanye had his own pop-up shop extravaganza over the weekend, selling Life of Pablo merchandise at 21 temporary locations around the world.
