Frank Ocean's 200-plus page "Boys Don't Cry" zine includes poetry from Ocean himself, Tyler, the Creator, and Kanye West. Kanye's poem "The McDonald's Man" was at once unexpected and unsurprising. The man grows more eccentric every day.

The zine was initially released as a limited edition, meaning that many have had the opportunity to read Kanye's poem. During an appearance Monday afternoon on Megan Ryte's HOT 97 show, Joey Bada$$ did the world a favor and recited the poem in full. 

"Classic. Shakespearian," Joey said upon completing the recitation.

Watch Joey recite "The McDonald's Man" above. Read the poem below.

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
