Open Windows, Open Season: Take Warning

Oh drat, it's THAT time of year again!

I make my point by tossing him out a window,
He'd been warned when he entered the room,

"You found your way in, you can find it back out,
And if it isn't done quickly,
From me you'll get a good clout."

I repeated my warning twice over,
Was he hard of hearing or just buzzing about?
At any rate my threat was put into action,
With a fly swatter I rubbed his life out.

Author's note: I have to give credit to Dreamcatcher, Larry, for the first line of this poem, which was his closing line to one of his poems in the Forum Games folder, in the Poetry Challenge, Use the Last Line first thread. I followed up with a version of the poem posted here. Thanks, Larry, it was a fun exchange.
