The curse verb can be used by itself, which would look something like:

>curse
You curse the day you were born.

>curse {target}
You let loose with an involved curse detailing the improbable ancestry of {target}.

Additionally the curse command ties in with the Curse (715) spell.
CURSE HELP shows how this aspect of the verb works:

>curse help

Usage:
    CURSE [target] [cursename]

CURSE HELP POWER refers to the caster's ability as it pertains to the Curse (715) spell and to what curse-choices are available, thus it can largely be ignored when it comes to the casting process itself. Type CURSE HELP to find your current power.
