Is our social welfare served through funding dirty ads,
Spending money on elections? (Not a little... Scads!)
Or is that political in nature? I'd say yes;
Donors to a social welfare group don't have to say
Who they are nor give a reason why they'll, gladly, pay
Limitless amounts of cash to get their guys elected.
Watch-dog groups did "sniff tests." A foul odor was detected.
Issue driven campaign ads, though they're protected speech,
Urge you towards a candidate... They're not designed to teach.
That sure sounds political - where speech is also free -
Guaranteed to them... Without the anonymity.
If these secret Super PACs have got a point to make
I think we should know who funds positions that they take.
Social welfare isn't served by people talking trash,
Not unless we also know who's putting up the cash.
