After doing this activity in a CUWP training session, here's the poem I wrote from a page in a book:

The Worst Wrong Turn

A monster in the dark
Slithered.
His reptilian smile
Luring me.

"I love you," he said. 
I shivered. 
Confused.
Head sailing.

"Lie in a hammock," he bubbled.
"Stay forever."
I rocked.
My head a smoking volcano,
Screaming.

He killed me. 
Stabbed. 
After midnight.
The worst wrong turn. 

And here's the one that I wrote from words on a lotion bottle:

Be






Be 
Deeply conditioned
And fortified with
Protective extract.

Be
Indulgent 
With a twist of 
Cool vanilla.


I love this activity. I wish I came up with it myself.
