Thank you all for the quick and informative replies - I'll read up on

I like lisp because it is almost free of syntax. If you think of it as a
data format that can be used to define functions you see that there is no
syntax - and if 'if' can apply at run-time, there's no reason not to
(define (one-two f x)
  (f x 1 2))
(one-two + 3) ==> 6
(one-two if #t) ==> 1
