What's the answer to my birth?
When's the time to pierce the earth?
Where's the hand to hold the spade?
At whose feet are empires laid?
Who's the man to dig my grave?
Which is monarch, which the slave?

To which I'll answer: Yes!
Solid 4 on the beat, hack.
Of course, this bit is rather topsy-turvy and confusing:
'Where's the hand to hold the spade,
at whose feet empires are laid?'
Is there a spade being held at someone's feet? If it's another question, it's flipped up sensewise.
