I'd cut that flower stalk off for sure. That plant looks like its struggling and flowering will only take more out of it. Looks like it could use more light or possibly wanting to go dormant.

Let it flower. The worst that can happen is it will DIE

I let one flower last summer just because I wanted to see the flower in person. It died shortly afterwards.

Definitely cut it, and stick the stalk into wet soil. You will save the plant, and get a bunch of new ones out of it. I did it last year, and it worked perfectly.
