It survives beneath a bench

My usual lunchtime walk took me round the back of Tate Modern, where I noticed a fleck of green beneath a trendy stone bench. I walked closer, noting the way the underside of the bench was lit and realised the green I saw was a plant.

A single plant surviving beneath a downlighter underneath a bench.

I know aesthetics will demand it is removed, but there’s a part of me that hopes it will escape the weedkiller and litter collectors a little while longer.
