Introducing the Honourable Karlene Maywald
You may have been told
And you may remember
She was the National Party SA Member

Elevated to Cabinet under Mike Rann
Karlene formulated a plan
As Minister for the River Murray
To save it in a hurry
It took a lot of political clout
During our severe drought

Back now riding the wave
There’s more water to save
A new government job to seize
As the Strategic Adviser – Water Opportunities
