Why Not Me?

Homer, Iliad 6.208 (tr. A.T. Murray):
Ever to be bravest and pre-eminent above all.

αἰὲν ἀριστεύειν καὶ ὑπείροχον ἔμμεναι ἄλλων.
James Hayford, Having to Be First:
This having to be first
Whenever you compete
Even if you have to cheat
Must be an awful thirst.

Seeing someone must be last,
I reckon why not me;
Call this my gift to the
Unwillingly surpassed.
