All these words...

Can be reversed to get another meaningful word.

As in:

devil -> LIVED
denim -> MINED
relive -> EVILER (hmmm)
diaper -> REPAID
lager -> REGAL
deliver -> REVILED
lever -> REVEL
drawer -> REWARD
sleep -> PEELS
stink -> KNITS
loops -> SPOOL
loots -> STOOL
parts -> STRAP
stressed -> DESSERTS
timer -> REMIT


Take your best mug
and fill it with decaf
Sharpen up with a strop
And don't fall into the trap
Of stirring it with silver spoons

This answer may not be the top
But I'll tell you how it's made
Take each word and swap
The direction that it's laid
Then you see from front to back it spins
