Kanye West has penned a very, very deep poem about McDonald's and their famous fries. Yes, you read that right. The piece was published in a magazine called Boys Don't Cry that was released at pop-up shops in New York, Los Angeles, London and Chicago last Saturday. The magazine came in conjunction with Frank Ocean's long-awaited album Blond.

The poem, titled 'The McDonald's Man', is apparently Kanye's ode to the fast food chain's outlets in Calabasas, California. Read the whole thing below.

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.

Kanye was even photographed at the drive-through.

And then, McDonald's responded with a simple tweet.
