[list](defun mirror_image (L)
(if (eq (cdr L) nil)
(append (mirror_image (cdr L))
(list (car L)))))[/list]
[list](mirror_image '((a b) (c (d e))))[/list]

What have you tried?
This looks a little like reversing the order of the list to me. There is a function REVERSE, but it doesn't do exactly what you want. How is what that does different from what you want?
(reverse '((a b) (c (d e))))
(reverse '(c (d e)))

Now if there is such a category “so easy it must be for homework or learning CL.” point me in the direction so that I am able to get the help that I need other then some immature juvenile looking to distract a new learner of CLISP.
(defun mirror_image (L)
(if (atom L)
(reverse (mapcar 'mirror_image L))))
(mirror_image '((a b) (c (d e))))
