IF I WERE

If I were him
I'd like to say
I'd do things
In a different way.
If I were her
I know I'd do
A better job
Far better than you !
If I were you
Take my advice
I'm never wrong
Not once nor twice.
If I were God
I'd shine my light
I've told him so -
I'm always right.

Yes, many say 'If I were'
They should go back to school,
To learn the lesson they have missed;
That 'IF I WERE' spells fool.
