Surprise discovery of viagra

Surprise discovery of viagra
A drug called sildenafil citrate,
Was meant to make vessels dilate,
Angina would fast,
Be a thing of the past,
If the side effects didn’t negate.

It’s not that the drug was unfit,
It worked, just not in the right bit,
The blood did flow,
But to the parts down below,
Viagra is now what we call it.
