Is anyone else old enough to be haunted by Simon & Garfunkel's I Am a Rock, written in the mid-1960's?

I have my books
And my poetry to protect me.
I am shielded in my armor.
Hiding in my room, safe within my womb,
I touch no one and no one touches me.

I am a rock.
I am an island.

Aye, how he looks
This my owner here to collect me.
I am shielded where I'm warmer.
Hiding in the dryer, spinning high and higher,
I miss no one, but someone's missing me.

I am a sock.
I am a nylon.

That's my son-in-law! There's no genetic relationship with my brother that I know of, but the connection is surely there.
