Nothing can stand between Kanye West and his McDonald's apple pie—and a newly-released poem from the rapper is proof.

In conjunction with Blond, the long-awaited and highly-anticipated follow-up to 2012's Channel Orange, musical genius Frank Ocean released a print magazine called Boys Don't Cry on Saturday at pop-up shops in New York, Los Angeles, London, and Chicago. Amongst many others, the publication featured contributions from A$AP Rocky, James Blake, and Tyler, the Creator, but the piece that seems to be gaining the most traction is a surprising poem from none other than Kanye Omari West.

Titled "The McDonald's Man," the poem is Kanye's ode to one of the fast food chain's establishments in Calabasas, California—and once you read it, you'll understand what all the fuss is about.

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.

Amen.
