Surrogate Curse

He was a bachelor.
His friend and his wife were married
close to a decade
but begot no children.
Doctors said
they would not beget one
due to his friend's incapacity.

The marriage was on the rocks.
The couple planned
that the husband's friend
can father a child for them.
This has not been unusual in India
throughout ages...
The wife seduced him
and he was almost trapped.
As he was about to be bedded
he ran away,
imagining possible implications
in later life.

The woman was angry.
The couple settled for a divorce.
The woman went back to her parents.
The husband married again
and got a child from his second marriage
through medical help.

But his friend was cursed.
When he married,
he and his wife never begot a child.
