A bell rung out,
a gong, a drumbeat,
or even a hunting horn sounded out its call.
A call for silence filled the air,
the words shouted,
of famine, war, feast, or taxation,
and all were protected by king, queen or country,
lest the messenger you kill.

Of what does this riddle speak?


Hint

He said "Oyez, Oyez!" or she said "Oyez, Oyez!" And you say nothing you only listen.
