Use formula to decide which SharePoint list to Get Items from

I have this really complex flow that I don't want to rewrite. Is it possible to use a formula to decide which SharePoint list to Get Items from?

 

If the answer to a forms question is x then get items from x SharePoint list, else get it from y sharepoint list on the same site. if(equals(formAnswer,'x'),x,y) and if(equals(formAnswer,'x'),'x','y') don't work, neither does referencing the lists using their identifer.

See my example below.  I ran the Flow and it completes without error if I select List A or List B.  My expression can be seen in the Action notes.
