In the style of Dr Seuss. Did this for a school assignment.
Ketamine
Will give you dreams
Whether good or bad,
Remains to be seen.

A dissociative drug
So the surgeon can tug
And when they wake up
They’ll be left to shrug

Their muscles get stiff
As they start to drift
Attention is lazy,
Memory gets hazy;

Apneustic breathing!
Increased heart beating!
The blood pressure rises!
Pupils increase their sizes!

But, stay calm my friend
And let’s play pretend
Because they won’t remember
What the surgeons dismember

While the head may be bobbing
And the tongue may be lolling
See, your patient isn’t sobbing
‘Cause the CNS we are robbing

For induction and anesthesia
It causes retrograde amnesia
NMDA antagonistic
It even helps with analgesia

But, don’t take it from me
Inject it and see
Or give it orally
Good old Ketamine;

Float like a butterfly
Sting like a bee
Increased salivation
And sensory sensitivity

So mix it with other things
Even diazepam has wings
My strange Ketamine...
Oh the uses you bring
For a great many things.
