Sailor's secret - Haiku

Back after a long hiatus, this post is about Sindbad.

The introduction of Sindbad's story is at CDHK.
In this, Sindbad tells that his path to money and glory has not been easy.

The next haiku is a little crazy because the actual spider-fly story has the cunning spider trapping the fly. I somehow thought of fly arguing with the spider that it works hard, and the captor spider telling about the hard work it has put in too. 
Not in the spirit of Sindbad at all, but I found the thought interesting. So...

not any less than yours
