  No, you don't.  Others have explained why in great detail.

| Is that the best it can do?

  The right question for you to ask is "is that the best I can do in
  Common Lisp?".  Others have explained better things you could do in
  great detail.

  I'd like to ask you a different question: What did you expect to
  learn from this comparison?  In my opinion, using naively coded
  examples with bugs in them is _not_ a good way to compare anything.

  If this is not what you expected, please alter your expectations.
