Martin Elginbrod

For some reason I can't get this rhyme out of my head:

Here lies Martin Elginbrod,
Hae mercy on my soul Lord God,
as I would do were I Lord God,
and ye were Martin Elginbrod!

It's a bit of puzzle: it's one whopper of a counterfactual to speculate what Martin would do if he were God and God were Martin!
