One Comma Too Many

My back is super furious
And causing so much pain,
I don’t know what I did to it,
So I asked it again.

“You owe me many years of pay!”
It yelled (and it was pissed)
“You’ve gone quite mad," I answered, "Why,
You’re an extortionist!”

“You said you’d pay me many times,
I hate to be so blunt,
But I’ve been here your whole life long
List’ning behind your front.”

“You know just what I mean,” it cried
As I stepped on a crack,
“I’ve heard you say a thousand times,
‘I swear I’ll pay you, back.’”
