"Man With Wooden Leg Escapes Prison" by James Tate

Man with wooden leg escapes prison. He’s caught.

They take his wooden leg away from him. Each day
he must cross a large hill and swim a wide river
to get to the field where he must work all day on
one leg. This goes on for a year. At the Christmas
Party they give him back his leg. Now he doesn’t
want it. His escape is all planned. It requires
only one leg.
