The Epic of Gilgamesh - Tablet VIII - Dam up the river

In this, the shortest piece in the show, Gilgamesh laments the loss of Enkidu, exhorting every place or person Enkidu has known to mourn his passing. He instructs his artisans to create a statue of Enkidu using the finest and rarest materials, and declares that he will now wander the wilderness wearing skins, unable to bear continuing with normal life without his friend by his side.
Finally Enkidu is laid to rest, buried under the bed of the River Euphrates.
