Providence

The Book of Times's forever hidden
From those who are impure at heart.
The Book of Knowledge is forbidden
For those with horse before the cart.

He who always does the right thing (like putting articles before the horse Regular smile ) will never acquire a deeper knowledge or understanding.

A syllable is missing in the second line. How about "From those who are impure of heart"?

Here "impure" is pronounced with 3 syllables.

You are pronouncing it incorrectly on purpose?
Perhaps spell it "impurè" to let people know the silent e is not silent here.

Why? [imˈpyo͝or] has a long 'oo' sound to match the iambic meter.

"Yoo" in "pyoor" is one syllable, not two.
