Were I Fire

Were I fire, I would burn the world.
Were I wind, I would pound it with storms.
Were I water, I would drown it.
Were I God, I would cast it in the abyss.
 
Were I the Pope, I would be jolly then,
I would fool all the Christians.
Were I an emperor, do you know what I would do?
I would behead everyone.
 
Were I death, I would go to my father.
Were I life, I would flee from him.
Similarly I would do with my mother.
Were I Cecco, as I am and was,
I would take the young and graceful women,
and I would leave the old and ugly ones to the others.
 
Were I fire, I would burn the world.
Were I wind, I would pound it with storms.
Were I water, I would drown it.
Were I God, I would cast it in the abyss.
 
You can use my translations however you like.
