Plum Taking

A man without eyes saw plums on a tree,
He didn’t take plums nor plums did he leave.

How can this be?

The man had only one eye and took one plum. (note singular versus plural)

If the man didn’t take plums nor plums did he leave, you would have to assume that there were only two plums on the tree, he took one “plum” (singular), and in doing so he wouldn’t have left back any “plums” but would have left “a plum”, so “plums” plural he didn’t leave.
