If nothing else, you probably can implement the Prolog
parts in Common Lisp with a bit of macro magic. This
is well-known enough that a translator might even be
provided with your Lisp system, or be downloadable
somewhere. Otherwise, a book such as Norvig's
Paradigms of Artificial Intelligence Programming (ch
11-12) describes the basics of how to compile logic
programs and Prolog to Lisp.

(The performance of "CL" prolog compared to "native"
prolog is unclear, but it might be good enough to get
rid of the extra subsystem.)
