Gilgamesh and the Tavern-keeper
I am Gilgamesh. I killed the Guardian! I destroyed Humbaba from the Cedar Forest. I killed lions and the Bull from Heaven.
Hi! If you are Gilgamesh, then why are your cheeks emaciated (skinny) and your expression so desolate (depressed) and seared (damaged) from weather?
Of course my cheeks are emaciated, and I am sad. I have traveled long distances. I have killed many beasts and my friend Enkidu has died.
I was terrified by his appearance, I began to fear death, and so I began to roam the wild. "How can I stay silent, how can I be still? My friend I love has turned to clay."
We will defeat you Hambuba, guardian of the Cedar Forest!
Six days and seven nights I mourned over him and would not allow him to be buried until a maggot fell out of his nose.
