Today's Word: Psaltery


1. An ancient stringed musical instrument played by plucking the strings with a plectrum or the fingers

There once was a girl who craved Big Sam Tuckitt
Whose voice made girls quiver, but was as dumb as a bucket
To get him to sing, she showed him her psaltery
Down upon which he scowled rather dumbly
"Now all you must do is pluck it"
