Who Watches the Watchmen?


Who watches the watchmen
While the watchmen are watching watch?



Centuries Ago

Juvenal asked his reader
In Satires book he wrote
Who does watch the watchman
While watchmen watching watch?

Adelaide 2022

Investigating watchmen
Breached international law
$20,000 dollars cost us
Watchmen watched no more


Juvenal’s question may be centuries old, but given
recent events, it’s no less pertinent in Adelaide today
