McDonald’s responded Monday to a poem “The McDonald’s Man” presented as Kanye West’s work in Frank Ocean’s zine “Boys Don’t Cry,” released Saturday at pop-up stores in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and London.

The poem featured lines like “I don’t trust no food that smells that good man,” and “Even the McRib was jealous of the fries. I could see it through his artificial meat eyes.”

Reached via e-mail, Terri Hickey, a spokesperson for McDonald’s, addressed West’s criticism of the chain’s meat in a statement released to TIME.

“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.”

West’s poem about the fast food chain was presented along with Ocean’s long-awaited new album “Blonde.” The prose, which appears in the zine on the restaurant’s drive-thru order board, personifies several McDonald’s items in an imagined political coup scenario.

Read the full poem below.

I Don’t Trust It I Can’t

I Knew The Diet Coke Was Jealous Of The Fries
I Knew The Diet Coke 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
