Why? Cus the French fries had a plan!

It’s an exciting time for all of us Frank Ocean fans!

A few days ago the singer released a new visual album on Apple Music, then he followed it up with a new studio album titled “Blond,” as well as a music video for his song “Nike.”

But that wasn’t all. Frank also put out a magazine/book titled “Boys Don’t Cry” to accompany the release of his music.

Physical copies were only sold at pop-up stores in New York, London, Chicago and Los Angeles.

The magazines contain essays and poetry by Ocean, as well as contributions from other artists like Lil B and Kanye West, who wrote a poem about McDonald’s.

For real. Yeezy wrote a poem about America’s favorite fast food chain.

And it’s pretty ah-mazing. Like, poetry in its purest form, y’all.

Kanye name drops all the classic menu items like the McRib and McNuggets. But the main star of his poem? The French fries, obvi.

Here’s the full text of the poem:

McDonalds man
McDonalds 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

McDonalds man
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 shit
I don’t trust no food that smells that good man
I don’t trust it
I just can’t

McDonalds man
McDonalds man
McDonalds, 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

Naturally, the Twitterverse responded with memes and jokes aplenty.

My favorite is this updated version of the poem with calorie counts:

Really puts things in a new perspective, doesn’t it?

Oh, and of course McDonald’s responded.

The fast food giant gave this official statement:

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.


Now, please excuse me while I go and get myself a hot apple pie.

All of this talk about food poetry has made me kinda hungry.
