McDonald's has heard Kanye West’s tasty poem about its food. And the fast food giant is lovin’ it. 

The burger empire shared an emoji-tagged message in response to West’s ode to McDonalds, published in Frank Ocean’s glossy magazine Boys Don’t Cry. “We’re lovin’ the love,” is the official line from the Golden Arches.

Joey Bada$$ brought the poem to life with a spoken-word performance of it for Hot 97. After he was done, Bada$$ praised the piece as "classic" and "Shakespearean."

Read West’s full poem 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 shit / 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, man / 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.”
