    Lua Lisp Language

    While not strictly a lisp, but an exo-lisp, I find Fennel very readable. Lua itself is very readable, and Fennel doesn't change much from Lua, only allowing kebab case and additional symbols in the names, that Lua doesn't allow. Its syntax is inspired by Clojure, not because it tries to be cool, but because it suits the Lua runtime it is running on pretty well.
